SEATTLE -- If you're looking for a safe city to live in, heading over the Eastside -- or Eastern Washington -- is not a bad choice.

Sammamish was named the safest city in Washington, based on a study by SafeHome.org.

The agency used crime data from the FBI and thousands of police agencies who cover towns of at least 46,000 people. Categories included property crimes, violent crime trend, violent crimes, citizen to officer ratio and property crime trend, researchers wrote.

Sammamish was named No. 1 in Washington and even made their national list at No. 78 -- the only city to make the Top 100 list.
