Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - The City of Henderson has been recognized by website MoneyGeek as the Second Safest Large City in America with a population of more than 300,000.

To rank the safest cities in the United States, MoneyGeek started with standardized crime statistics reported to the FBI. The population of each city was added to the analysis to determine crime rates per 100,000 people, and this information was also accessed via data provided by the FBI. When cities with more than 200,000 people did not have data available in the FBI dataset, MoneyGeek conducted individualized research on standardized crime statistics for each specific city.

300 cities in all were looked at and only Raleigh, North Carolina was ranked safer than Henderson for cities with populations over 300,000.

Arlington, Virginia topped the entire survey.
