Safe Home uses a variety of data sources and reports to calculate its rankings, including FBI reports, crime trends, law officer ratio, demographics, populations, unemployment level and income.
Chief Gary Yandura credits his officers and the department’s community outreach efforts with the rating.
“I’m proud of our officers who put their lives on the line every day to protect our residents and strengthen our sense of community,” he said. “I believe our community outreach efforts like Shop with a Badge and Coffee with a Cop play a strong role in earning the respect and trust of our residents.”
