2nd safest city photoGilbert, Ariz. - Gilbert, Arizona has been recognized as the second safest city in the United States for the second year in a row by Law Street Media. Utilizing data from the FBI’s 2013 Uniform Crime Report Statistics, the study reviewed cities with populations over 200,000 and credits Gilbert’s high ranking to the city’s more than 10% drop in violent crime rate in the last year.  

“Gilbert is a community committed to safety and we are proud to be recognized as the country’s second safest city for the second year in a row,” said Gilbert Mayor John Lewis. “The dedication of our terrific police department along with the support from our residents and businesses contribute to making Gilbert a safe atmosphere for all to enjoy.”
