Valparaiso Awarded as the 9th Safest City in Florida

SafeWise released its “20 Safest Cities in Florida” report on October 23, 2017. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2015 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 3,000 people.

SafeWise security analyst Alexia Chianis commented on the report, “Like all states, Florida has its dangerous places, but the cities on our list certainly aren’t included. The average crime rate among the southeastern-most state’s twenty safest locations was 65% lower than the national average in 2015—with a mere ten crimes reported per 1,000 people."
