Fairview Named 5th Safest City in Texas

 

SafeWise, a leading online safety resource, recently released their 2020 Safest Cities list and placed the Town of Fairview at number 5, behind Fulshear, Hutto, San Elizario and Trophy Club. Murphy, Allen and Frisco were in the top 50 as well.

To identify the cities with the best safety records, SafeWise analysts looked at the number of violent crimes reported in the 2016 FBI Unified Crime Report. They also calculated the number of violent crime incidents per 1,000 people in each city. Analysts established population thresholds, and in the event of a tie, property crimes were considered. 

"On both state and city levels, Texans are seeing less crime and experiencing lower rates of incarceration than in previous years," SafeWise security analyst Laura E. Hilton says.

The SafeWise report also notes that Texas is also experiencing fewer incidents of hate crimes, property crimes and sexual assault. Other interesting findings include: 

  • All of the cities that made the safest list are well below both state (4.1) and national (3.7) violent crime rates. 
  • Every safest city came in under both state (23.7) and national (22.0) property crime rates. 
  • 19 cities (38%) reported fewer than 100 total property crimes. 

SafeWise provides information to help individuals, families and communities make smart security and safety decisions.
