Safety seems to be on the top of our minds these days and for good reason. This is why I’d like to bring some good news to the table and let you know that Rochester Hills has been deemed as one of the SAFEST cities in the United States!!
“The Detroit suburb ranks high because of its relatively low number of violent and property crimes compared to other cities.” Rochester Patch
According to an interview with WXYZ, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard had this to say:
“We’re extremely proud of Rochester Hills making multiple lists as one of the safest cities, the only safe city in Michigan according to the one list.”
It ranks 48 nationally and 18 locally as far as the safest in the metro Detroit area. According to Neighborhood Scout, there’s a 1 in 1,187 chance of you ever becoming a victim of a violent crime. This data was obtained from the local law enforcement agencies’ records from 2016.
It has a crime index of 74 out of 100, with 100 being the safest. Not only that, but Rochester Hills was also recognized by 24/7 Wall St., as the best city in Michigan to live! One of the reasons they chose Rochester Hills as the best city to live in was education.
“High school students in Rochester Hills test better than students in any city in Michigan other than Troy and Ann Arbor, and 57.3 percent of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree — far more than the 31.3 percent of adults nationwide.” According to the editors of 24/7
