California's 50 Safest Cities

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is proud to announce that eight of our contract cities have been featured on The SafeWise Report: “The 50 Safest Cities in California”.
SafeWise, a safety and home security company has completed extensive research while comparing their data to the FBI’s Crime in the US Report. They then created a list of the safest California cities to live in with 200,000 residents or more, as of 2011.
On that list of 50 cities, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department patrols eight of them. These communities all have a few things in common. Aside from their beautiful homes and nature trails, the citizens of these cities get involved on a daily basis. With very few crimes committed each year, residents have a huge sense of comfort and pride.
As a department we feel that through the great efforts of our law enforcement and the citizens of our communities, we can continue to add Orange County cities to the safest cities to live in.
