Gilbert is the second-safest city in America among the 100 largest in the nation, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program’s 2019 report released this week.
These rankings are based on the total crimes per 1,000 residents.
The study shows that total crime in Gilbert decreased from 2018 to 2019, as did crimes per 1,000 residents. Gilbert saw a drop in the number of rapes, murders, thefts, arsons and other property crimes last year despite seeing a population increase of more than 6,000 residents.
