    Carmel, Fishers top 'Safest Cities to Raise a Child' list
    SafeWise, a home security and safety brand, put Carmel and Fishers in the top two spots on its "30 Safest Cities to Raise a Child" list.

    Carmel ranked first, while Fishers placed second. They are the only two Indiana cities on the list, and two of just three Midwestern communities. Naperville, Ill., came in at No. 19.

    To complete the rankings, SafeWise analyzed violent crime data from the FBI Crime Report, as well as sex offender populations, state graduation rates and school rankings, according to the report. It also looked for kid-friendly programs in the area.
