Read more about Security

Alabama's a great place to live—and we're not just whistling Dixie. Major urban hubs like Birmingham, Montgomery, and Huntsville are thriving centers of commerce while spots like Gorham's bluff offer a quiet retreat. Plus, all around the Yellowhammer state you'll find many smaller cities and towns where residents are living in safety.

Pull back away from the safest communities, and you’ll find that Alabama’s violent and property crime rates are slightly above the national average. But there’s no cause to be alarmed. According to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, crime decreased by 5% statewide in 2014, which is certainly good news.

Still, if you’re an Alabama devotee, you’ll want to stay in its safest corners. The same holds true if you’re planning a move there in the near future. Rest assured, CreditDonkey has the full scoop on which cities fit the bill, so keep reading to see where you have the least chance of being affected by crime.

Study Methodology

We based our analysis on crime data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report for 2014. We considered both violent and property crime report information for Alabama cities with a population of 2,500 or higher.

Violent crime is defined as:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault

Property crime includes:

  • Burglary
  • Larceny
  • Motor vehicle theft
  • Arson

We factored in the number of violent and property crimes per 1,000 inhabitants, as well as the number of robberies and burglaries per 1,000 inhabitants. Robbery and burglary get the spotlight because they tend to occur more often and are more at the top of one’s mind for safety-conscious residents.

Using those four criteria, we assigned each Alabama city a CreditDonkey safety score. The top 50 cities had the best safety scores overall, and we’ve ranked them below, starting with the safest.

Safest Cities 2016: Rankings

1. Margaret

  • Violent crime per 1,000: 0.9
  • Robbery per 1,000: 0.0
  • Property crime per 1,000: 3.8
  • Burglary per 1,000: 0.9
  • CreditDonkey safety score: 1.4

The safest city is also one of Alabama’s smaller communities, with a little over 4,500 people living here. But when you consider this figure has quadrupled in recent years, you’ll wonder what the attraction is. A strong sense of security has something to do with it, and its small size certainly gives Margaret an advantage in the crime department. Margaret had just four violent crimes (all aggravated assaults) and 17 property crimes reported in 2014.

2. Helena

  • Violent crime per 1,000: 1.0

The second safest city in Alabama also has a feminine name. Helena is known for oozing Southern charm, ever since its days as a coal-mining community. Now folks here have their sights focused on improving its future, and keeping crime to a minimum is a big part of that vision. To do so, the Helena Police Department employs a community-policing approach, actively encouraging involvement from citizens to prevent bad things from happening.
