Oklahoma’s
50 Safest Cities

2019

Am I the only one that can’t help but sing the name of this state? Aside from being the title and setting for one of the most famous musicals of all time, Oklahoma has a lot to offer, whether you’re visiting or moving there to stay. With a population of over 3.8 million people, the state boasts a number of cities including Oklahoma City, its capital, Tulsa, Norman, Lawton, Edmond, and Broken Arrow. Its key industries include agriculture, natural gas, oil, and petroleum products, which help contribute to is Gross Domestic Product of nearly $170 million, according to the United States Department of Commerce.

One of the coolest things about Oklahoma is the fact that it has the largest Native American population in the country. The name Oklahoma itself is taken from two Native American words meaning “red people”. It’s also the site of the first shopping cart, invented by the owner of the Piggly Wiggly food market chain, the first parking meter, and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Museum. As far as professional sports go, you can root for either the Oklahoma City Thunder or the Tulsa Shock, both basketball teams from the NBA and WNBA, respectively.

Whether you’re moving to Oklahoma or simply visiting, here’s some things that you can’t miss:

  • Beavers Bend State Park: For trout fishing, camping, and hiking, you’ll love this pine forest and lake.
  • Bricktown: For a more cultural experience, dine at warehouse restaurants and take a water taxi tour through this repurposed industrial space.
  • Philbrook Museum of Art: Walk through a mansion built in the Italian Renaissance style and view art from all over the world, plus gorgeous gardens to boot!

While it’s fun to plan activities for when you’re in Oklahoma, safety is also a factor that you can’t ignore. The safest city in Oklahoma is Piedmont, located in Canadian County and part of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. With a population of over 7,700, this city has a median income of over $85,000, well-above the national average. But perhaps the most impressive thing about Piedmont is its crimes, or lack thereof. Out of 1,000 residents, there were only .65 violent crimes and 4.14 property crimes, both down from the previous year! Read on to see if your city made the list.

4.562

This statistic shows the number of violent crimes per 1,000 people in the past year. Violent crimes include forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, as defined by the FBI. 

3.117
This statistic shows how many motor vehicles were stolen per 1,000 of the city’s inhabitants. Across the United States, the rate was 238.8 per every 100,000 inhabitants, according to the FBI.
28.764

Finally, this number shows how many property crimes were committed in the past year per every 1,000 of the city’s residents. Property crimes include burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson and larceny-theft.

How Did We Determine the Safest Cities?

Of course, this isn’t just the safest cities according to personal opinion. Rather, we used the FBI’s 2017 and 2016 Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) data to choose our top picks, based on factors like:

  • Murder rate
  • Rape rate
  • Robbery Rate
  • Assault rate
  • Burglary rate
  • Theft rate
  • Vehicle theft rate
  • Arson rates
  • Median Income

For each city, we’ll provide the most important information that you need to know, such as the city’s population, violent and property crime rates and trends, median income, average household income, and an overall safety score and ranking. Plus, we’ll show you all the specific numbers for the above rates, in addition to larceny theft rates and the total number of civilians working in law offices.
