Wisconsin village among the safest in the nation

March 10, 2014 by  

Menomonee Falls has been ranked among the top 100 of the safest communities in the United States by NeighborhoodScout.com.

The website lists information on property value, ranks of public schools, and crime data for people who are looking to buy a home. Against neighborhoods with a population of at least 25,000, Menomonee Falls came in 62nd.

According to Anna Ruzinski, Police Chief of Menomonee Falls, it was the only Wisconsin village to earn a spot in the top 100 and she attributed it to:

“…the hard work of the Menomonee Falls Police Department, and the way we interact with the community.”

In 2012, the village had 11.4 crimes on property and 0.39 violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Ruzinski commented that the national averages were 28.6 property crimes and 3.9 violent crimes. Randall Newman, Menomonee Falls Village President, expressed his gratitude to Chief Ruzinski for keeping crime low and excelling at her duty at all times.

One easy way to work with the local police department and inform the community on how to protect themselves is by making brochures that give information on various crimes and how people can prevent them. Brochure printers in the area could therefore be in for extra business if customers become aware that they are working with the police to make their community a safer place.
