Bob Dylan hails from the safest city in America, according to the home safety and security company SafeWise.
The city of over 16,000 people has a Community Liaison Officer who is dedicated to community policing, and a variety of drug and alcohol enforcement programs that helped its ranking, SafeWise notes.
The ranking shows Hibbing has a violent crime rate of .25 per 1,000 residents and a property crime rate of just .37 per 1,000 residents – no other city on the list has a property crime that low, the Hibbing Daily Tribune notes.
Coming in at No. 2 behind Hibbing was Upper Providence Township, Pennsylvania; followed by Zionsville, Indiana; Ridgefield, Connecticut; and South Park Township, Pennsylvania, rounded out the top five.
No other Minnesota cities made the list, but SafeWise has compiled a list of Minnesota's 15 safest cities with populations over 2,500.
Hibbing has been ranked No. 1 among Minnesota's safest cities in the past, including lists by Safe Choice Security and Movoto, the Hibbing Daily Tribune says.
