Fifth safest city in the San Gabriel Valley

Backgroundchecks.org, the free online directory and portal dedicated to helping people find online public records and run an online background check, recently released analysis of all cities in California found that Monrovia was the 39th safest city in the state. This makes Monrovia the fifth safest city in the San Gabriel Valley, ranking behind Sierra Madre (7th), San Marino (12th), South Pasadena (24th), and Glendale (32nd).

The site used the most recent FBI crime statistics to create state rankings. There were initially 7,430 cities in the data set. After filtering out the cities with populations of less than 10,000, 2,929 cities remained. Violent crime rates and property crime rates were then calculated by dividing the crime numbers by the population to get rates per 1,000. They also calculated the ratio of law enforcement workers to per 1,000. These were weighted with -50% for the violent crime rate, -25% for the property crime rate, and +25% for the law enforcement rate. The resulting metric is the safety index score. The higher the number, the safer the city.
