Mundelein Earns 57th Safest City in the USA Recognition

Mundelein, IL – 01/31/17 – The Village of Mundelein recently was ranked one of America’s “Top 100 Safest Cities” by Neighborhood Scout for 2017.  The organization’s researchers targeted cities across America with 25,000 or more people, based on the total number of crimes per 1,000 residents. Crimes include burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, homicide, rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Data used for this research are the number of crimes reported to the FBI to have occurred in each city, and the population of each city.

“We were very pleased to hear the great news about being ranked one of the safest cities in the U.S. and we feel this recognition is a direct reflection of our hardworking, competent and dedicated team. While I am honored to have received this recognition, I know it’s earned every day by the commitment all of our police officers give to their jobs,” said Eric Guenther, Chief of Police.

According to Neighborhood Scout’s researchers, they take a comprehensive approach in their city safety analysis. “Since many cities are served by more than one law enforcement agency, our exclusive analysis includes crimes reported by all agencies. We accomplish this by collecting raw crime data from all 17,000 law enforcement agencies in America. Then we use a relational database built from the ground up to assign reported crimes from each agency to the city where it has law enforcement responsibility. This method provides an accurate representation of the complete number and types of crimes that truly occur within any city or town, not just crimes reported by a single municipal agency. We do this same process for every city in the United States,” the company said in a prepared statement.

“Once we have this complete and accurate count of crimes for every city in the nation, our analysis takes the total crimes for each city with 25,000 or more people, and divides them by the population of the city, divided by 1,000. This establishes a total crime rate per 1,000 population that is used to compare every city,” Neighborhood Scout representatives explained.
