Mustang listed in top 10 safest cities

Mustang is one of the top 10 safest cities in Oklahoma, a study shows.
The city was recently ranked No. 8 by The National Council for Home Safety and Security.
“It’s a great honor and I think it’s reflective of how our citizens hopefully feel when they return to Mustang at the end of the day,” City Manager Tim Rooney said. “We have a focus on a family environment here and we have people that look out for each other.”
The National Council for Home Safety and Security compiled the list of the top 50 safest cities in Oklahoma by reviewing the most recent Federal Bureau of Investigation Uniform Crime Report statistics, as well as population data and internal research.
The list doesn’t include any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI or that have populations less than 5,000.
The cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes, including aggravated assault, murder, rape and robbery, and property crimes, including burglary, arson, larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft, per 100,000 people.
The number of crimes were weighted to determine the safest cities. Violent crimes accounted for 70 percent of the total due to their severity and property crimes accounted for 30 percent.
Mustang was not only listed as one of the safest cities, but also is surrounded by other cities listed in the top 50.
Four out of nine cities included in Canadian County are on the list.
