Several local cities were ranked by a security system website as some of the safest cities in the state.
Bella Vista, Bentonville, Centerton and Siloam Springs are some of the local area cities ranked in www.alarms.org‘s Safest Cities in Arkansas list.
Bella Vista was ranked No. 1, Centerton No. 2, Bentonville No. 5, Siloam Springs No. 7 and Van Buren No. 9.
The website based its list on FBI Uniform Crime Report Statistics.
“A total of 7,639 cities were factored into this ranking with populations ranging from 7,639 to 4,007,147. However, we eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 10,000,” the website states.
