A company which provides home security systems has named Aurora one of the 50 safest cities of at least 15,000 population in Ohio. The city ranks ninth on SafeWise’s top 50 list. SafeWise is based in Salt Lake City, Utah.
SafeWise is a community-focused security organization which bills itself as “the source for everything safety and security.”
According to Elli Bishop, SafeWise’s community safety manager, the firm compiled its “50 safest” list using the most recent FBI crime data from 2011, population and other factors such as unique safety initiatives and security programs implemented within the past few years.

A handful of other nearby cities also made SafeWise’s top 10 list. Streetsboro was No. 2, Hudson third, Twinsburg seventh and Solon 10th. The No. 1 safest city on the list is Broadview Heights.
