Kingsland ranked top 50 as one of Georgia’s safest cities, report finds

Kingsland, GA ranked in the top 50 as one of Georgia’s safest cities.

Kingsland, GA is ranked as one of Georgia’s top 50 safest cities.

For the City of Royal Treatment, Kingsland ranked 49 out of 50, according to latest Safewise report.

The methodology behind the statistics used the  2016 FBI Crime Report Statistics and population data.

The evaluation is based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) in each city. If there was a tie, Safewise factored in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). To level the playing field, Safewise calculated the rate of crimes per 1,000 people in each city. This method makes directly compares the likelihood of these crimes occurring in cities with vastly different populations.

    That must be because they don’t prosecute when people are murdered like Taylor Williams. He was a combat medic in the Army who was murdered August 14, 2016 in Kingsland, GA and no murder or manslaughter charges were prosecuted. #JusticeForTaylorWilliams
