Channahon Named 2nd Safest City in Illinois
Up from the 6th spot in 2017, Channahon has been named 2nd Safest City in Illinois for 2018!
According to a recent report issued by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, this list was determined by the following criteria:
“To identify the safest cities in Illinois, we reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with our own population data and internal research. We eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 10,000.
The remaining cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) per 1,000 people. These variables were then weighted, with violent crimes accounting for 1.5 of the total (due to their severity) than property crimes. “
