Grosse Ile has been ranked the safest town in Michigan out of 102 locations with a population over 10,000, according to Movoto Real Estate, an online real estate brokerage. 

The study, based on FBI crime statistics from 2012, says residents on Grosse Ile have a one-in-115 chance of being the victim of a crime of any type.

"In 2012, Grosse Ile only saw a total of 89 crimes...out of over 10,200 people. That is the same amount that the city of St. Clair Shores saw in motor vehicle theft alone," the study said. 

The island had no reports of murder, forcible rape or robbery. Of the total crimes committed, 76 of them were larceny.

Here are the 10 safest places in Michigan, according to Movoto:

1. Grosse Ile Township
2. Hamburg Township
3. South Lyon
3. Village of Milford
5. City of Berkley
6. City of New Baltimore
7. Bloomfield Township
8. City of Riverview
8. West Bloomfield Township
10. City of Rochester

Don't understand where 102,000 figure came from. The population was 10,371 at the 2010 cens. This is from GI facebook page.

You may want to re-read this. "Grosse Ile has been ranked the safest location in Michigan out of 102 locations with a population over 10,000." Based on 102 different locations in Michigan with the population of over 10,000 people Grosse Ile is the safest of them all.

Great, my old home town. My current "home town" in which I raised my family and have been teaching for the past 27 years is #10!
