Violent Crimes Per 1,000: 1.29
Property Crimes Per 1,000: 18.80

Does it bother anyone else that Maricopa is in Pinal County, not Maricopa County?

When did the New times turn into a WHORe for the States' Chamber of Commerce... Sorry boys, but without listing the real population for each city your stats are MEANINGLESS...and you know it. Ridiculous story!!! M. Must have been a huge donation to publish this crap?

Florence is the spousal abuse capital of the State… the prison population have ruined the quality of life there.

You can't put up "the safest cities" when no ones ever heard of the place. Or the town has a population of 5.

Boredom? This state is a desert wasteland. No humans belong here. It's already boring as hell. Might as well live in a safe city. Of course... They probably have the most violent, undertrained cops too...

Who came up with this list anyway? I'd like to see the survey. Scottsdale has always been known for having low crime. I'm guessing Fountain Hills is right up there too. Both beautiful places to live with a lot of events and activities and where people actually can walk the streets at night and not be shot. Every place has some crime these days, but who wants to live in a town where there is absolutely nothing happening and miles away from what is? People moved to the towns listed for cheap housing, not low crime.

Gilbert always been a police state. They always harass people who don't fit there image. Even the court system there sucks too.

I left in July 96 when I went in the Navy. Last time I was in Mesa, it was pretty bad. The area I grew up in has really gone to shit. I plan I retiring in Arizona. I'll be in AZ tomorrow looking at different houses/property. Any idea(s) how that area got so bad? It was a great area in the 80s/90s.

In Gilbert I might not die from a random act of violence, but do feel myself almost dying from a general lack of excitement.

Maricopa is a name of a federally recognized Indian tribe in Arizona. Yet, it's no where near the Maricopa reservation either.

Nobody, including the criminals, has heard of most of these places. Recently met a police officer who retired out of Florence. Said there was lots of crime because when released many of the inmates stay in the area.

Not exactly a purposeful report if you exclude the municipalities where the majority of the population lives. Perhaps re evaluating the story to actually be beneficial to the readership would be wise?
