December 28, 2023 (FISHERS, IND.) – Fishers has been named the second safest city in America for 2024 by MoneyGeek in their annual analysis of 302 U.S. cities with populations of 100,000 or more.
With a crime cost per capita of $296, Fishers is one of only two Midwest cities in the top eight. In their assessment of safest cities, MoneyGeek analyzed crime data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and calculated each city’s cost of crime, ranking cities based on the cost of crime per capita.
Earlier this year, Fishers was ranked #4 on the list of America’s Safest Suburbs of 2023 from SmartAsset, with a violent crime rate lower than 84% of other suburbs in the study.
“This recognition demonstrates our commitment to strive for the highest standards of quality of life and safety in our community,” said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “As a regional leader in law enforcement, Fishers Police takes protecting and serving to the next level through their collaboration with other law enforcement agencies, community engagement initiatives, and use of smart technology. I’m incredibly proud of the work they have done for our community, from their role in developing the Indiana Gun Crimes Task Force to the work of our School Resource Officers in mentoring and keeping our kids safe.”
“Fishers is at the top of this list because of the proactive work our officers do day in and day out to keep our city safe,” said Fishers Chief of Police Ed Gebhart. “This continued success wouldn’t be possible without the support we receive from our community. We will continue to hold true to our policing values of protecting and serving our city, securing the future of our children, and supporting our officers to continue to achieve the highest standards.”
