Congratulations go out to two cities in the Saddleback Valley that received honors from the QC Press as being in top 10 Safest City in the country.

Mission Viejo ranked #1 safest city in the nation. With a population of 98,483 it had the lowest crime rate during 2006 for cities with populations of 75,000 of more. Mission Viejo has consistently been one of the top 10 cities since the Safest City Awards began 14 years ago.

Both Mission Viejo and Lake Forest is located in South Orange County California. Both cities are family-oriented communities, with outstanding schools and more the 50 parks, numerous recreation centers and an outstanding business climate.

We should also mention the city of Irvine as it came in 11th just behind the city of Lake Forest. As with Mission Viejo both Lake Foret and Irvine consistently rank in the top 10 category.

The rankings of the safest and most dangerous cities are calculated using six basic crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assaults, burglary and motor vehicle theft. The rankings include all cities of at least 75,000 residents that reported crime data to the FBI.
We are truly blessed to live here!
