Oro Valley Listed as #8 Safest Suburb

iion_logoA recent article on movoto.com listed Oro Valley among the “Top 10 Safest Suburbs.” Coming in at #8 on the list, Oro Valley can add this distinction to its growing list of awards and recognitions. The criteria used by movoto.com was first to compile a list of 120 places which are suburbs of the 50 most populous cities in the country. From there they obtained statistics from the FBI’s most recent national crime report from 2012 in the following categories:

  • Property crimes per capita (burglary, theft, and motor vehicle theft)
  • violent crimes per capita (murders, robberies, aggravated assaults)
  • The chances of being a victim of a crime
  • The statistics were then weighted so that violent crime accounted for 50% of each suburb’s final score. Oro Valley proved to be the sixth-safest suburb in violent crimes per capita. In terms of property crime it ranked 19th-safest and 15th-safest in the chances of being a victim of crime. Overall this goes to show the efforts Oro Valley Police have done to deter criminal activity. No city or town can complete eradicate crime, but with only 700 crimes reported in 2012, Oro Valley is among the safer suburbs of a major city according to these results.
