Florence was named the Safest City in Arizona and the 17th Safest City in America by NeighborhoodScout, which recently released their list of the top 100 Safest Cities in America.  

Florence was the only city in Arizona to earn the distinction of being among the top 100 Safest Cities in America.  The Safest City in the country was earned by Franklin, MA.  NeighborhoodScout determined the top 100 Safest Cities in America with a population of 25,000 or more people, based on the size of the community and the amount of violent crimes per 1,000 residents. 

“I am very proud to lead a department that works so hard to ensure the safety of our citizens”, said Florence Police Chief Daniel Hughes when he learned of the recognition that Florence had earned.
