The company looked at the 100 most populous American cities and formed rankings on per capita statistics relating to property crime, violent crime, and the chance of being a victim of crime using the FBI’s most recent crime report.
“There was only one murder per 100,000 people during all of 2012 in Scottsdale and just 147 violent crimes, making it one of the safest big cities in America,” the Movodo report states.
The city of about 219,000 residents has four police districts and 413 sworn police officers, the release states.
Latest Scottsdale crime statistics show a 4.4 percent decrease in serious crimes in 2013 compared to the previous year, city officials contend.
“We are pleased that an analysis of crime statistics shows Scottsdale to be among the safest cities in America,” said Police Chief Alan Rodbell in a prepared statement.
“That is a credit to the excellent men and women of our department, our engaged citizens and the strong partnerships that exist within our community.”
