The website MoneyGeek.com has ranked 303 U.S. cities with a population of 100,000 or more according to how safe they are, and Broken Arrow nearly cracked the top ten, coming in at number 11.
That’s in stark contrast to nearby Tulsa, which ranked a woeful 269 in the study.
Interestingly, the site also made an effort to calculate the financial cost of crime per capita, looking at everything from direct costs, such as damage to and loss of property and police and corrections budgets, to indirect costs like depressed home values and increased insurance costs.
They estimate the per capita cost of crime in Broken Arrow is $304.
Tulsa’s is nearly ten times higher at $3,004.
