Where’s one if the safest places to live in Michigan?

Dearborn Heights, which ranked 46th on the list of Michigan’s 50 safest cities released Wednesday the national security organization SafeWise.

Here’s why:

“This Detroit suburb has reasonably low crime rates and easy access to nearby Detroit, Dearborn, and Livonia. The community is rich with services including excellent schools, top-rated healthcare facilities, and neighborhoods filled with community-minded people who know each other.

"Four school districts serve the large number of school-aged children in the city, which comprise more than 32 percent of the residency. Its many schools offer a wide range of educational opportunities, including magnet high schools and specialty schools focused on math, science, and technology.

As always, consider the source. SafeWise sells home security systems. Maybe this company already has met its quota of wiring homes in the Dearborn Heights market and is looking for more business in other places, like Dearborn. Maybe this is free advertising.

Carla O'Neill you make a good point. I just read another site called areavibes that compares crime rates in cities" and it included other opinions. Allen Park considered safer than Dearborn, Dearborn Heights was not as safe as Dearborn. But Dearborn is not anywhere as safe as it was even 20 years ago, the high schools aren't as good either.

No city that borders Detroit, including Dearborn, is as safe as it was in the past. My point is that I would rather get my statistics from an unbiased source, than from a for-profit company that thrives on pandering to the safety and security fears of all of us.
