San Ramon, One of the top 50 Safest Cities in California—2017

2017San Ramon, One of the top 50 Safest Cities in California, 2017

When people think of California they think award-winning wineries, high tech industry and beautiful beaches. They don’t necessarily realize it is home to dozens of the safest cities in America.

SafeWise came out with a report of the 50 safest cities in California. San Ramon made it to #22!! The fifty safest cities in California reported only 13 crimes per 1,000 people in 2015.

Comparing that to the national average, there are 29 crimes per 1,000 people. This is according to a recent FBI crime report.

Several of these cities such as Los Altos, Moraga, Orinda, Mill Valley also cited fewer than ten total violent crimes and Hillsborough reported just one!

All together, the cities on the list reported only thirty murders. Not to sound nonchalant, but this is remarkably few considering these cities represent a population well over two million.

According to this particular study, San Ramon made it to the top 22nd safest city to live in California. That is pretty amazing considering there are almost 500 towns and cities in California. Danville made it to 15th and Orinda is 21st.

Property crime rates are also exceptionally low in California’s fifty safest cities. Only one city on the list reported more than ten arsons.
Half of the cities reported fewer than 100 burglaries. All but 11 cities on this year’s list also appeared on last year’s list. This indicates that these cities are committed to long-term crime prevention.

Canyon Lake, Yorba Linda and Truckee moved up considerably in rank, so we applaud them! maintaining a safe environment is a community undertaking. See the California Safety Directory for home security tips, safety resource and a color coded map of the states most and least burglarized counties.
