Goleta Named A Safe City For Fourth Year In A Row

June 02, 2017

GOLETA, CA, June 21, 2017 – The City of Goleta received its second award this year for being one of the top safest cities to live in California. This is the 4th year in a row Goleta earned this honor from SafeWise, a community-focused security organization committed to increasing safety education, awareness, and preparedness.

“It is wonderful news to learn that Goleta has earned another safe city award,” said Mayor Paula Perotte. “This is the City’s seventh award in five years, which proves that our commitment to safety is effective. This is not an independent effort; it is the cooperation of law enforcement and residents that continue to make Goleta a safe place to live.”

SafeWise compiled its “50 Safest Cities in California” report using the most recent FBI crime data from 2015 to analyze and rank cities with a minimum population of 10,000 people. The cities that made the list had much lower violent crime and property crime rates than the national average.
