A set of rankings released by a national home security company finds that Prairie Village and Leawood are among the safest cities in Kansas.
Safe Choice Security last week released a list of its safest places to live in Kansas. Just 14 of the 300 cities the company reviewed made the list. Prairie Village came in second and Leawood came in third. Lansing was tops.
According to the rankings, Prairie Village is safer than 71 percent of cities in the United States. Leawood is safer than 60 percent.
Johnson County was very well represented on the list, with Spring Hill, Shawnee, Lenexa, Gardner, Olathe and Overland Park all among the top 14. The company says it referenced its own crime data as well as FBI and police databases to form its rankings.
Just last month, real estate site Movoto named Prairie Village to its safest cities in Kansas list as well.
