Geneva ranked in the top 8 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 crimes in the 2018 FBI Crime Report, the most recent data available. The company calculated the number of violent and property crime incidents per 1,000 people in each city.
Geneva moved up five spots to be listed as the 22nd safest city out of 251 Illinois communities listed on the study. Geneva has a violent crime rate of 0.3 per 1,000 people and a property crime rate of 7.0 per 1,000 people.
For comparison purposes, other communities ranked:
