Rowlett Ranks in the Top Ten of Texas's Safest Cities
Of the 65 safest cities in Texas, 24 of them have a Safety Score of at least 80. Some of the larger cities also made it to the list but have a lower score naturally because of denser populations. Flower Mound is Texas' safest city according to our list, with an impressive score of 90.42. In 2010, the population of Flower Mound was almost 65,000 which is a relatively good amount in relation to its safety score. Just northwest is Dallas, one of the state's biggest cities with well over 1 million people as of 2014. Dallas is the 45th safest city in Texas according to our list, with a score of 70.85.

The other cities that made it higher up in the list include Allen (88.02), Georgetown (86.49), Mansfield (85.48), and Cedar Park (85.26).
