Bay Area City Named to “Safest Cities in America-2016” Report
Posted In: Friendswood News Posted by Pam Moore on 02/15/2016

City of Friendswood Communications ~ “The website “NeighborhoodScout.com” has named Friendswood one of the Safest Cities in America-2016. Friendswood was ranked 44, second highest in Texas (behind number 43, Keller) and highest in the greater Houston area.

Neighborhood Scout’s ranking is based on cities with 25,000 or more people, based on the total number of property and violent crimes per 1,000 residents.

For the last five years, Friendswood has an average rank of 42 in the Neighborhood Scout data.

“I am pleased, for a number of reasons, to see Neighborhood Scout’s research findings place the City of Friendswood at number 44 in the Safest Cities in America-2016. It is nice to be singled out as the only Houston suburb to make the list and the second highest ranked city in the State of Texas,” said Robert Wieners, Chief of Police, City of Friendswood.

“It is a great compliment to not only the men and women of the Police Department, but also to the citizens who have made awareness and reporting of potential criminal activity a priority. Together, we all have a safer community,” Wieners added. Neighborhood Scout’s report uses the most recent data the FBI classifies as “Final, non-preliminary.” For this ranking, it is the 2014 year total data, released in Final, Non-Preliminary form in November, 2015.

“We feel public safety is a core responsibility for our City,” said Mayor Kevin Holland. “It is gratifying to be recognized again by an organization that relies on ‘apples to apples’ statistical data over a period of years, to draw the conclusion that Friendswood is meeting that responsibility.”
