    Safewise recently released their fifth-annual report that addressed where Oregon is at in safety compared to the nation, as well as listed out the top 20 safest cities in Oregon.

    Nationally, Oregon is below average in property and violent crime incidents, having 1.43 violent crime incidents per 1,000 people, and 15.89 property crime incidents per 1,000 people. In comparison, nationally the violent crime rate is at 4.49 incidents per 1,000 people, and property crime per 1,000 is at 27.11.
