This dynamic college town has secured the coveted title of third safest city in the United States, according to a recent national safety ranking ( This impressive achievement reflects the city’s unwavering commitment to public safety and its residents’ well-being.  

The ranking takes a comprehensive approach, considering a range of factors that contribute to overall safety. Crime rates naturally play a significant role.

Ann Arbor also has proactive local law enforcement, which implements strategies that deter crime and maintain a consistent sense of security throughout the city.  

“Ann Arbor also fosters a strong sense of community, evident in resident-led initiatives like neighborhood watch programs. These programs cultivate a spirit of collaboration and mutual support, strengthening the city’s social fabric,” Clague parent Armita Kyani said.

Additionally, the city’s proximity to the prestigious University of Michigan makes it even more attractive for students seeking a safe environment to pursue their education

“I feel very happy and safe in Ann Arbor’s community, especially with my friends,” Clague seventh grader Methuja Don said.
