A list of the top 10 safest cities in America is available on the website for Parenting magazine. The list takes several factors into account, including the number of registered sex offenders in the city and its safety rating by the Institute for Economics & Peace.
According to the magazine's criteria, the safest city in America as of 2015 is Edison, New Jersey. The city boasts a very low crime rate and one of the lowest number of sex offenders in the country. The second city on the list was Port St. Lucie, Florida. It received a lower rating than Edison due to New Jersey's lower rating on the Institute for Economics & Peace Index.
