SafeWise has just released its 6th annual Safest Cities in California report, and we are grateful for some good news to share!
All of the safest cities beat both national (3.7) and state (4.5) violent crime rates, and no safest city reported more than three violent crime incidents per 1,000.
60% of the cities reported zero murders, and 88% had one or fewer murders.
Rancho Santa Margarita had the lowest per capita, with 6.5 incidents per 1,000 people and 326 total crimes!
