Irvine Ranked Among Top Ten Safest Cities Worldwide
Monday, January 07, 2019
“Irvine has held the status of the Safest City of its size in America by the FBI for 13 consecutive years. It is no surprise to learn that our city is now ranked among the top ten safest cities in the world,” said Bryan Starr, president and CEO, Greater Irvine Chamber. “This accomplishment is in large part the result of a visionary Irvine Master Plan set forth more than a half a century ago, excellent city management, a world-class police department, and engaged residents and business leaders that take pride in their community.”
According to a recent statistical analysis by CEOWORLD Magazine, Irvine is among the top ten safest cities in the world. The analysis is based off an estimation of the overall level of crime in a given city. Included in the ranking were a total of 338 cities.
The news follows a report released in September 2018 by the FBI, ranking Irvine as the Safest City of its size in the nation since 2005. The information released shows that Irvine has the lowest rate of violent crime per capita of any city in the nation with a population of 250,000 or more.
