Menomonee Falls Appears on Safest Communities List

Menomonee Falls was named the 60th safest community out of 100 according to Neighborhood Scout.

Menomonee Falls Police Chief Anna Ruzinski on Monday announced that the Village of Menomonee Falls received the honor as one of the 2013 Safest Cities in America for cities with a population of over 25,000. 

This honor was received from the neighborhood research site, NeighborhoodScout, and Falls is ranked 60th out of 100 communities.  

The award was unsolicited and based on the total number of crimes per 1,000 residents.  Data used for the research are 1) the total UCR crimes reported to the FBI to have occurred in each city, and 2) the population of each city.  Crime statistics reflect the 2011 calendar year, which are the most recent vetted by the FBI.

Recently, Patch compiled violent crime and property crime in a database, which can be viewed online.     

"The Menomonee Falls Police Department takes pride in keeping our community safe.  The men and women of the department work diligently and effectively to create a safe environment for our citizens," Ruzinski said in a statement Tuesday.

Great we received a bird award last night, safe community plaque and the chillifest was a success!!! Wow, that's great, meanwhile our streets are falling apart and many of our commercial storefronts are vacant. Good job, trustees.

Kudos to the police department for their efforts patrolling and following up on incidences.

Hope Ruzinski isn't using her former's adulterer Bosses computer system . The key is how each crime were recorded something the patch should look into just like JS did. ,,,,,,,Trust but verify -- with that said congrads MFPD.

10th out of a 100 would be good but 60 out of 100???

There are thousands of communities in the U.S. with a population over 25,000. So, ranking 60th is tremendous! This refects well on our fellow residents as well as the Police Department and Village leaders.
