According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the number of criminal offenses reported to law enforcement decreased by 5% between 2014 and 2015, with a total of approximately 342,000 arrests made last year.

If you’re curious about which cities offer you the best odds for avoiding crime, CreditDonkey’s got just what you’re looking for. We’ve ranked the 50 safest cities in Tennessee. So if you make your home here or you will soon, dive in with us to see which locales made the list.

Study Methodology

We used the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report data for 2014 to help formulate our rankings. Our study is based violent and property crime report information for Tennessee cities with a population of at least 5,000.

Violent crime is defined as:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault

Property crime is defined as:

  • Burglary
  • Larceny
  • Motor vehicle theft
  • Arson

Each city was assigned a CreditDonkey Safety Score, using the number of violent and property crimes per 1,000 inhabitants as well as the number of robberies and burglaries per 1,000 inhabitants. We gave special attention to these two crimes since they tend to occur more often and are likely to be something residents are concerned about.

Our final rankings reflect the 50 cities that received the best safety scores overall. They’re ranked here, starting with the Tennessee city that earned the distinction of being the safest.
