[ARCHIVED] Geneva Ranked Second Safest City In Illinois

Geneva ranked the second safest City in Illinois according to a recent study conducted by the website BackgroundCheks.org.

The website ranked the 50 safest cities in Illinois based on FBI violent crime stats and propriety company research data. Rates are normalized per 100,000 residents with the stage average being 370 for violent crime 2,076 for property crime. This rate is calculated by taking (number of crimes divided by the population) multiplied by 100,000.

The website stated living in Geneva is "a safe choice" with a violent crime rate of 9.2 and the chance of being affected by property crime just 1.2 percent.

"This is a true achievement, which is a result of city government, police, and residents working together to ensure that Geneva is safe," said Jason Quimby, Outreach Director for BackgroundChecks.org.

Geneva was only edged out by Western Springs on the top 50 list. To read more about the study, visit the link below.
