Two cities in the CSRA are ranked among the top 50 safest cities in Georgia, according to a list released by safety and security company SafeWise

Grovetown in Columbia County came in at number 20, while Waynesboro in Burke County ranked number 34. 

SafeWise based the rankings on their own research and the FBI's recent "Crime in the U.S. 2012" report. To make the list, cities had to have a population of at least 5,000. 

Grovetown made the list thanks to its small number of violent crimes reported in 2012 and its well-performing Columbia County School System schools.

Waynesboro was recognized for its business-friendly atmosphere and available activities. The city also had a very small number of crimes reported in 2012.
