Falls receives safe city award

Feb. 18, 2013

The village of Menomonee Falls was recently named one of the safest cities in America.

This honor was received from the neighborhood research site Neighborhood Scout, which looked at cities with a population of over 25,000. The award will be presented in front of the Menomonee Falls Village Board at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Village Hall, N8480 Pilgrim Road, according to Police Chief Anna Ruzinski.

The award was unsolicited and based on the total number of crimes per 1,000 residents. Data used for the research included the total crimes in the village reported to the FBI, as well as the total population.

Crime statistics reflect the 2011 calendar year, which are the most recent vetted by the FBI.
