Looking for a safe community to live and raise a family, or simply just live in? According to the National Council for Home Security 2018 report, Santa Clarita is among the Top 50 safest cities in California. Santa Clarita ranked #48.
As California cities grow rapidly due to economic expansion a byproduct of such growth can be unfortunately crime. Property crimes tend to be the most common crimes committed in affluent suburban communities. As California’s population increases (Tthe most populous state in America) it has pushed the state into the top 25% for violent crime rates. Yet, Santa Clarita with the 2nd largest population of cities (with over 200,000 residents) is committed to providing on a continual basis protection for its residents.
According to the report, Santa Clarita had a total of 3,005 property crimes, with 13.68 incidents per 1,000 residents. The average property crime rate for California cities was 26.45, per 1,000 Californians. When it comes to violent crimes, Santa Clarita averaged 1.51 violent crimes per 1,000 people. The average among California cities per 1,000 people is 4.44. In both instances, Santa Clarita beats the average. A testimonial to the commitment to safety by the City of Santa Clarita.
Another bright spot for Santa Clarita was a separate report published by SafeHome.org ranked Santa Clarita nearly in the exact same rank as the National Council for Home Security report.
