Fairview Named Fourth Safest City in Texas

The National Council for Home Safety and Security recently announced in May 2017, their annual Safest Cities in Texas Report for 2017. On this list, the Town of Fairview ranked fourth out of the nearly 1,000 cities and towns found in the State of Texas.

The National Council combined data from the most recent FBI crime reports, population data and their own research to create their rankings. The Town of Fairview received this ranking due to Fairview’s extremely low number of property and violent crimes as compared to the Town’s population. The rest of the list’s Top Five included Heath at #5, Colleyville at #3, Trophy Club at #2 and the city of Kermit at #1.


Fairview is excited to be the highest ranked Collin County municipality on this list as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and Collin County in particular, continue to boom. The DFW Metroplex is currently the top metropolitan area in the State of Texas and the fourth largest metro area in the country, just behind Chicago.


Texas has four of the country's 12 most-populated cities: Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin. This concentration of population has helped draw 54 different Fortune 500 companies to move to the state so far. The second-biggest state in the country, Texas only lags behind Alaska in size and California in population to boot.


Throughout its history, Texas has been ruled by Spain, France and Mexico, and it was also the only U.S. State to be its own independent republic. It's that image of freedom, along with economic opportunities and warm weather that continues to draw people to Texas.


The National Council for Home Safety and Security is a trade association comprised of home security professionals across the United States.

Their organization is made up of companies and individuals in the home safety and security industries.
