Well, Fishers has been given yet another accolade!
Our town has been named as one of the safest cities in America. We were ranked the 36th Safest City In America by NeighborhoodScout.com, who each year, publishes a list of the top 100 safest cities in America.
The criteria for the cities considered for the designation includes cities with 25,000 or more population, and is based on the total number of crimes per 1,000 residents. Crimes include burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault.
When asked to comment on this new designation, our Fishers Police Chief George Kehl stated, “We are excited and honored to once again be named one of the safest cities in America.” “This award is a direct reflection of the active partnership between the dedicated men and women of the Fishers Police Department and the residents they serve,” Chief Kehl continued.
This year Fishers was one of only two cities in Indiana to achieve this status. Carmel was given the ranking of 33rd safest city. Click here for the complete list of the 2014 Top 100 Safest Cities in America.
