The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in Ohio” list this week, ranking the city of Solon as number 10.
"Solon is also home to one of the most prestigious healthcare facilities in the world. The Cleveland Clinic operates a family health center in town, providing residents with access to some of the best healthcare in the world," the blog report reads.
To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2011, population, and other ranking factors, like unique safety initiatives and security programs implemented within the past few years.
From the hundreds of cities in Ohio, researchers narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to how the city met our criteria.
“When neighbors know each other, they look out for each other,” SafeWise security analyst John Roskelley said. “Ohio's safest cities are brimming with civically minded residents who clearly take pride in where they live."
