Movoto Real Estate recently released their 2015 list of the safest places to live in Alabama. The listings are based off of the recently updated 2013 FBI Uniform Crime Report.
Hoover ranked 10th in the state, one below last year's rank of ninth in the state. According to Movoto's article, the rank fell due to a slight increase in criminal activity. Two murders were reported out of Hoover's population of 84,000.
