Cape Coral is retaining its top spot as the number one safest city in Florida for violent crime relative to its population (at least 100,000 residents), and the number two safest city overall
When the Cape Coral Police Department released their Annual Uniform Crime Report for 2016 it was revealed that there was a slight decrease in overall crime from 2015 to 2016.
Police Chief Dave Newlan credits his team of professionals but also includes volunteers and civilian support personnel for keeping the crime rate low and making the city a safe place to live.
The safety of the city is just one more reason, according to Forbes, Cape Coral is the fastest growing city in the United States.
In May, Chief Newlan stated that Cape Coral will continue to hire new officers as the city grows. The goal is to keep the ratio of officers to citizens at a rate where Cape Coral can maintain its safe city status.
