Illinois’s
50 Safest Cities

2019

In terms of firsts, Illinois has got it covered. It was the first state to ratify the 13th amendment abolishing slavery, but it also had the first ice cream sundae made in Evanston, a Chicago suburb, plus the first use of the word “jazz” in 1914. Even Twinkies, the delicious snack cake, were invented in River Forest, Illinois in 1930! Although most people outside of Illinois probably associate it most commonly with Chicago, there are a number of other places in the state worth visiting. Morton, for example, is known as the “pumpkin capital of the world,” supplying more than 85% of packaged pumpkin internationally. Aurora, on the other hand, is known as “the city of lights”, as it was the first city in the United States to use electricity for its street lighting throughout. For those that prefer a more rural atmosphere, have no fear— almost 80% of Illinois is farmland.

You may be planning a visit to Illinois, or even moving there. Regardless of the reason, we compiled a list of Illinois’ safest cities, from Campton Hills to Roscoe. Let’s talk about our top pick for the safest city in Illinois, Campton Hills. A western suburb of Chicago, Campton Hills has a population of 11,342 and a very impressive median income of over $131,000, most likely a result of its proximity to the state’s business center. Believe it or not, there were no violent crimes and only 1.59 property crimes per 1,000 people, both down from the previous year. Other top picks include Hawthorn Woods, Elburn, and Lincolnshire.

4.388

This statistic shows the number of violent crimes per 1,000 people in the past year. Violent crimes include forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, as defined by the FBI. 

1.631
This statistic shows how many motor vehicles were stolen per 1,000 of the city’s inhabitants. Across the United States, the rate was 238.8 per every 100,000 inhabitants, according to the FBI.
20.114

Finally, this number shows how many property crimes were committed in the past year per every 1,000 of the city’s residents. Property crimes include burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson and larceny-theft.

How Did We Determine the Safest Cities?

Of course, this isn’t just the safest cities according to personal opinion. Rather, we used the FBI’s 2017 and 2016 Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) data to choose our top picks, based on factors like:

  • Murder rate
  • Rape rate
  • Robbery Rate
  • Assault rate
  • Burglary rate
  • Theft rate
  • Vehicle theft rate
  • Arson rates
  • Median Income

For each city, we’ll provide the most important information that you need to know, such as the city’s population, violent and property crime rates and trends, median income, average household income, and an overall safety score and ranking. Plus, we’ll show you all the specific numbers for the above rates, in addition to larceny theft rates and the total number of civilians working in law offices.
