Seward Named One of Nebraska's 10 Safest Cities

Cities with populations over 3,000 who submitted full reports to the FBI were considered; communities with partial FBI data were not considered. Violent crimes, such as murder, aggravated assault, robbery and forcible rape, and property crimes, which consist of burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, and larceny-theft, were considered in the ranking.
