Geneva ranked in the top 10 percent of Illinois' safest cities, according to a recent study by SafeWise.

To identify the cities with the best safety records, SafeWise looked at the number of violent crimes in the 2017 FBI Crime Report, the most recent data available. The company also calculated the number of violent crime incidents per 1,000 people in each city.

Geneva was named the 27th safest city out of 269 Illinois communities listed on the study. Geneva has a violent crime rate of 0.41 per 1,000 people and a property crime rate of 8.25 per 1,000 people.

For comparison purposes, other communities ranked:
