By City of Eastvale
Eastvale– The City of Eastvale was proud to announce that they have been ranked on the Top 50 Safest Cities in California list for 2019, based on a study conducted by SafeWise. Eastvale was ranked 12th among the 482 cities in California.
To identify the fifty safest cities in California, SafeWise reviews FBI crime report statistics and population data. Their evaluation is based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) in each city. If there was a tie between cities, they also factored in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). To be equitable, they also calculated the rate of crimes per 1,000 people in each city. This made it easier to directly compare the likelihood of these crimes occurring in cities with vastly different populations.

“We are proud to be recognized as the 12th safest city in California! As the City Council and I met last year, we decided to continue with having Public Safety as a top priority in our strategic plan,” Mayor Todd Rigby said. “We have and continue to make significant investments in public safety to include Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) Cameras, the Street Light Acquisition, our Neighborhood Watch Program, additional Motorcycle Officer, and additional patrol hours to name a few. As these investments are implemented, we hope to continue to rise on that list of safest cities in the state. We are sending a loud message to criminals and our residents, that Eastvale will continue to invest in our community to protect and keep our residents safe.”
The City of Eastvale would like to remind its residents and businesses to be vigilant by reporting suspicious and criminal activity as soon as it is seen to the Eastvale Police Department. If you see something, say something. Maintaining a safe environment is a team effort and city is grateful for their team that is made up of our Eastvale Police Department, residents, businesses, and partnering agencies. Together, they’re the best.
