Mundelein Named in Top 100 Safest Cities in Illinois List

The National Council for Home Safety and Security recently announced its 2018 ranking of the Safest Cities in Illinois. Mundelein ranked 44th on the list. Mayor Steve Lentz and Police Chief Eric Guenther are pleased to make this announcement.

To identify the safest cities in Illinois, the National Council for Home Safety and Security, the organization reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with its own population data and internal research, eliminating any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 10,000.

The remaining cities were 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. These variables were then weighted, with violent crimes accounting for 1.5 of the total (due to their severity) than property crimes.

Illinois’s violent crimes per 1,000 places it at #35 in the U.S., while its property crimes per 1,000 is enough to push it into the top twenty lowest in that category (#18). A state of remarkable contrasts, Illinois contains some of the most well-to-do and safe communities in the nation.

The National Council for Home Safety and Security is a trade association comprised of home security professionals across the United States. The council advocates for safe communities and home safety with a strong focus on community involvement.
