Scottsdale, AZ

Scottsdale is a popular dessert destination for snowbirds, retirees, AND new families. It even seems as though Scottsdale’s crime rate numbers keep decreasing each year. Particularly, violent crime rates are lowering, adding to the feeling of security for people who reside in the city.

Scottsdale’s violent crime rate of just 149/100,000 residents makes its locals 65 percent less likely to be victims of a horrific crime than any other average Arizona resident. Even in property crimes, usually a common Achilles’ heel for desirable cities, Scottsdale appears to be a notable improvement on both Arizona and the national average. Property crimes are 24 percent less common in Scottsdale than in any other city in the state.

    1. How can any place in California be safe to live in?! The whole west coast is beautiful and used to be safe with plenty of fun things to do. Now that the Democrats have taken over, run as fast as you can from the west coast.

    I would add to your list of small towns which a safe and charming, the place where i now live, Monongahela, Pa. It’s in western Pennsylvania about 27 miles from Pittsburgh. It is a lovely old town over 150 years old with wonderful homes and buildings. Mny of the families and businesses have been her for generations. It has a wonderful business district with fine shops and restaurants with places within walking distance. It has a good economy and an affordable cost of living. There is little crime here because we have a fine police department, fire department, paramedics and a fine local hospital. The buildings are well kept up and there is no slums or grafitti. People are friendly and say hello on the streets. There are other fine communities like this in the easteren and midwestern United States that should be included.

  2. Fascinating that nothing is mentioned about the cost of living in any of these towns; any place is CA is cost-prohibitive and the same is true for anything in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Doesn’t matter how safe it is if you can’t afford to live there. Just sayin’.
