Chula Vista Named 10th Safest City
The City of Chula Vista has been named as the 10th safest city in America according to rankings based on FBI data released November 24 by Law Street Media, a new web site covering law and policy. Full rankings are available at

Based on FBI violent-crime data compiled for calendar 2012, Irvine, California was ranked to be the safest American city. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Report statistics for 2012 cover every city with a population over 100,000 – 286 cities in all.

Flint, Michigan was ranked as America’s most dangerous city and Detroit as America’s most dangerous big city. Four major crime categories were used to create a standard measure of violent crimes per 100,000 people including murders, aggravated assaults, robberies and forcible rapes.

The top ten safest cities with populations over 200,000 are in order: Irvine, CA; Gilbert, AZ; Plano, TX, Fremont, CA; Scottsdale, AZ; Henderson, NV; Virginia Beach, VA; Irving, TX; Garland, TX; and Chula Vista, CA.

Chula Vista is located at the center of one of the richest cultural, economic and environmentally diverse zones in the United States. It is the second-largest City in San Diego County with a population of over 250,000. Chula Vista boasts more than 50 square miles of coastal landscape, canyons, rolling hills, mountains, and a variety of natural resources and quality infrastructure. Established neighborhoods, contemporary communities, start-up firms, corporations, nationally recognized entertainment venues, the nation’s only warm weather Olympic Training Center, an award winning nature center and a historic downtown all contribute to Chula Vista’s attraction for both families and businesses.
