Since 2015, Bristol has had the distinction of being on this list; recently, Bristol has been ranked #13 out of the 50 "Safest College Towns in America" by SafeWise.

From the SafeWise website..." To deem a college town “safe,” we zeroed in on violent crimes per 1,000 people for each city.¹ Violent crimes include murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. We also looked at property crimes (burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, and arson), but those numbers didn’t impact our final determination unless there was a tie on the violent crime rate—so don’t stress if you see a safe city with higher property crime rates ranking better than one with lower property crime rates."
