Huron Township is on a list of the top 50 safest cities in Michigan, according to Background Checks.org, a resource and database for all things related to public records.

Background Checks.org recently released a list of the top 100 safest cities in Michigan.

Coming in at 46 and making the top 50 safest cities is Huron Township.

“We used the most recent FBI crime statistics to create state rankings. There were initially 7,430 cities in the data set. After filtering out the cities with populations of less than 10,000, 2,929 cities remained. We then calculated violent crime rates and property crime rates by dividing the crime numbers by the population to get rates per 1,000,” the website says.

Other nearby communities who made the list include Grosse Ile Township coming in at number one, and Trenton at number ten.

“We also calculated the ratio of law enforcement workers to per 1,000. These were weighted with -50% for the violent crime rate, -25% for the property crime rate, and +25% for the law enforcement rate. The resulting metric gave us a the safety index score. The higher this number more safe the city is,” the website says.
