LANSING (WJRT) (2/14/2018) - Two Mid-Michigan towns were judged in the 10 safest in Michigan by the National Council for Home Safety and Security.

Brandon Township in northern Oakland County was judged the fourth safest while Flushing Township was named the sixth safest municipality in the state with a population more than 10,000.

Other area municipalities included in the rankings are:
-- Oxford Township in northern Oakland County at 13th place.
-- The city of Midland at 37th place.
-- Davison Township in Genesee County at 40th place.
-- Thomas Township in Saginaw County at 46th place.

-- Bay City in 106th place.
-- The city of Saginaw in 112th place.
-- The city of Flint in 127th place.
-- Flint Township in Genesee County at 130th place.

The National Council for Home Safety and Security, which is a trade association for home security professionals, reviewed FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics, population data and internal research to assemble the rankings.

Cities and townships that did not complete a crime report to the FBI were omitted, along with all cities of less than 10,000 people.

Each municipality was ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes and property crimes per 1,000 people. These variables were then weighted, with violent crimes assigned a value 1.5 times that of property crimes.
