(WXIA) -- McRae has been named the safest city in Georgia.

McRae ranks among SafeWise's latest list of the 50 Safest Cities in Georgia.

Perry and Eatonton are also on the list.

SafeWise used FBI crime data and its own private research to compile the ranking. It cited Auburn's mere 76 crimes in 2012 -- none of which were murder, arson, rape or robbery -- for its standing.

"What's most impressive to me about a state like Georgia is the collective dedication to both personal and community safety," SafeWise security analyst Carolyn Heneghan said in a release. "Of the 50 cities we recognized, it's not just the small towns, but the bigger cities too, that all take part in keeping themselves, their neighbors and their children safe."

Metro Atlanta fared well on the list, with 9 of the top 10 located within easy driving distance of the state capital.

Georgia's safest cities include:

1. Auburn
2. Johns Creek
3. Milton
4. Holly Springs
5. Peachtree City
6. McRae
7. Tyrone
8. Braselton
9. Jefferson
10. Kennesaw
