Taking the top spot for safest town was Mayville in Dodge County.
Plover came in as the 16th safest town. Rankings were based on data based on assaults, burglaries and violent crime rates. Towns that averaged low rates in all categories received a higher ranking.
For the study, a town was excluded if it was a suburb or had more than 100,000 residents.
