America’s Safest Cities

SIX CALIFORNIA CITIES LISTED AMONG AMERICA’S 25 SAFEST

Six cities in the state of California — more than any other state — are among the top 25 safest cities in America, according to the 13th annual Safest City Award.

California’s “safest” cities are Mission Viejo (#3), Irvine (#7), Thousand Oaks (#11), Lake Forest (#15), Simi Valley (#17), and Chino Hills (#21).

Brick, NJ, was named “America’s Safest City.”

The Safest City Award is based on a city’s rate for six basic crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft. All cities with populations of 75,000 or more that reported crime data to the FBI for the six crime categories were included in the rankings. In this year’s survey, 371 cities were considered for the award.

So what if Bay Area cities weren’t on the top 10? We still have the best restaurants, recreation, and entertainment a city could offer!
