A recent survey has declared Farmington and Rosemount among the safest cities in Minnesota.

Safe Choice Security used 2012 FBI crime statistics to identify Minnesota’s 20 safest cities. The company ranked Farmington third on its list, citing the city’s focus on community.

“Its police department believes in communicating with the public and does so very effectively in a number of ways,” the report states.

Rosemount finished sixth in the survey.

Other area cities also fared well. Lakeville was seventh and Northfield was 20th.

The new list disagrees somewhat with a survey released in May by real estate blog Movoto. That survey, which also used 2012 FBI crime data, ranked Rosemount the second safest city in the state behind Lakeville and ranked Farmington ninth.
