(CBS Detroit) Beverly Hills comes in at number seven according to a new report by Safewise.com. 

The site lists the 20 safest Michigan cities to live in right now.

Safewise evaluated FBI crime report statistics, population data, and the rate of crime per every 1,000 people in a city to get the results.

On average, violent offenses such as murder, rape, and robbery, accounted for less than 5% of all crimes reported by Michigan’s 20 safest cities.

From small towns like Oakland Township and Northville to much more populated ones like Bloomfield Township and Novi, all 20 safest cities in the Great Lakes State experienced significantly low property crime rates. With an average of just seven property crimes reported per 1,000 people (compared to the US average of 28), it’s easy to see why these cities made our list.
