The City of Henderson has been recognized by website MoneyGeek as the Second Safest Large City in America (population of 300,000 or more).
MoneyGeek analyzed crime statistics and applied research findings to estimate the cost of crime in over 300 U.S. cities with populations of 100,000. The data included violent crimes such as murder, rape and aggravated assault and property crimes such as home burglary and motor vehicle theft. MoneyGeek calculated each city’s cost of crime and ranked the cities based on the cost of crime per capita. Additionally, researchers have quantified how much more violent crimes cost a community than property crimes. The site found the safest and most dangerous cities in America and estimated the societal cost of crime in these cities to be $176 billion in 2019.
“Community support is vital to our success,” said Henderson Chief of Police Thedrick Andres. “Our partnerships in the community, support from the City officials and dedicated officers and staff allow the City of Henderson Police Department to provide superior service to our citizens.”
