Safe city

Calabasas was named the 25th safest city in the state in the National Council for Home Safety and Security’s recently released ranking of the Safest Cities in California for 2018.

To identify the safest cities, the council reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with its own population data and internal research.

Cities were then 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.

By all measures, Calabasas ranks among the best.

“The safety of our residents and visitors is our city’s absolute number one priority,” said Calabasas Mayor Fred Gaines. “Our Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies do an incredible job, and we also work closely with our Public Safety Commission, local homeowners’ associations and Neighborhood Watch to keep a constant eye on any problems.”
