[ARCHIVED] Rancho Palos Verdes Named 4th Safest City in California

RPV is Fourth Safest City in CA

Rancho Palos Verdes has been named the fourth safest city in California by SafeWise, a leading safety firm specializing in home security advice and services.

Using FBI crime statistics and population data, SafeWise determined Rancho Palos Verdes had a rate of 0.7 violent crimes and 7.5 property crimes per 1,000 residents – figures far below state and national rates.

The ranking represents an improvement from Rancho Palos Verdes’ position on last year’s list as the sixth safest city in California and comes as the city has seen significant reductions in Part One crimes over the past several years.

Since 2015, Part One Crimes, which include residential and vehicle burglaries, have decreased by over 35%, according to data from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Rancho Palos Verdes is one of three cities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula served by the Lomita Sheriff’s Station. In recent years, the city has increased investment in public safety resources, including automated license plate recognition technology, and direct subsidies to residents and neighborhoods to purchase security cameras.

Rancho Palos Verdes also maintains an interactive map of major crimes on its website.
