SafeWise.com   released a report  detailing 2018's 20 safest cities in Arizona. The safety tip website compared the most recent  FBI Crime Report  statistics from 2016 with population data. Cities were eliminated if they had less than 2,000 residents and if they failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI.

The primary factors in question were number of reported violent crimes (murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault) and property crimes (arson, burglary, motor vehicle theft, and larceny-theft) in each city.
