10 Safest U.S. Cities

For the first time since 2006, violent crime was on the rise last year, according to FBI data. But in some cities, violent crime remains well below national averages. AOL Real Estate recently analyzed the FBI’s report on crime to find the cities with populations of more than 200,000 that have violent crime rates “substantially” below the national average.

Here are the top 10 “safe zones” that made its list:

  1. Irvine, Calif. (ninth consecutive year named safest city in the nation)
  2. Fremont, Calif.
  3. Plano, Texas
  4. Madison, Wis.
  5. Irving, Texas
  6. Scottsdale, Ariz.
  7. Boise, Idaho
  8. Henderson, Nev.
  9. Chandler, Ariz.
  10. Chula Vista, Calif.
