Georgetown was ranked the 21st-safest city in Texas, according to BackgroundChecks.org’s annual Safest Cities report.

Georgetown was also the only Austin-area city to be listed among the top 50 safest cities, according to the report.

BackgroundChecks.org is a free online directory and portal for accessing public records and running background checks as well as a resource to help visitors stay on top of public information, according to its website.

The Safest Cities report was compiled using a statistical calculation of every city’s latest violent crime rate, property crime rate and number of law-enforcement officers employed, according to the report. A total of 2,929 cities were analyzed in the report, filtering out any cities with populations of under 10,000, it said.

Correction: A previous edition misstated Georgetown as only Central Texas city to make top 50 on the list but it is the only Austin-area city to make top 50 on the list.
