The rankings of the Safest Cities in North Carolina is an annual listing done by Safe Wise, where they do an in depth analysis of all municipalities across the state that have a population of over 4,000 residents.

The categories used by the Safe Wise team in the comparison are first, the number in each town of violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well the overall number of property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). Once these are figured out, they then arrive at an overall ratio showing the chances out every 1,000 residents of each of these crimes possibly happening.

This is the third consecutive year that Knightdale has ranked in the Top 50 among all municipalities on the listing of Safest Cities in North Carolina.
