Crime costs per resident show how much crime financially impacts a city. San Bernardino and Oakland have high costs while Thousand Oaks and Irvine are safer and have lower costs. However, these numbers don’t tell the whole story. Other factors like community involvement and resources also affect safety. So, while rankings give an idea of safety it’s important to look deeper to understand what makes a city safe.
