What are the Safest Cities in California – Oakley at #47


A number of important factors play a role in deciding which neighborhood is the best to settle down in.

Does this town have a good education system? Is the overall cost of living within my means? Am I going to enjoy the weather here? Are there enough things to do and places to eat to keep me entertained? Is this a place where I could see myself living?

All things considered, perhaps the most important parameter when deciding where you want to live is the safety of the town.

Everyone wants to live in a safe community. Whether you are alone or not, you want to feel secure in the early mornings, late nights, and all the time in between. LendEDU is not endorsing this, but ideally you want to live in a neighborhood where you can leave your house without locking the door and know all your possessions will be there when you get back.

LendEDU’s newest report recognizes the safest towns and cities in each state in the U.S. Using licensed data, we gathered the total crime risk score for every single town in the country. This score represents the combined risk of rape, murder, assault, robbery, burglary, larceny, and vehicle theft compared to the national average of 100.

If a city posted a total crime risk score of 200 it meant that place had twice the risk of crime compared to the national average. Or, a city that recorded a score of 50 had half the risk of crime compared to the national average. A lower crime risk score meant a safer community.

The tables below have ranked the safest towns in each state according to their difference from the national average crime risk score of 100. For example, if an incredibly safe community had a -98 difference from the national average, it meant that place had a crime risk score of two.

Cities that made the top of their state’s list had the highest negative difference from the national average; a higher negative difference meant a lower crime risk score, which meant a safer town.
