Fishers among MoneyGeek’s safest cities in America



Indianapolis, Indiana – MoneyGeek has listed Fishers, Indiana as one of the Safest Cities in America for 2024.

Based on MoneyGeek’s examination of over 300 American communities with a population of 100,000 or more, Fishers was ranked as the second safest city in the US.

Only two Midwest cities rank in the Top 8 with a higher crime rate than Fishers, which has a $296 per capita.

MoneyGeek evaluated crime data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to determine the cost of crime in each city and ranked them according to the cost of crime per capita to determine which cities are the safest in the nation.

Fishers was placed fourth on SmartAsset’s list of America’s Safest Suburbs of 2023 earlier this year. The city’s violent crime rate, according to SmartAsset, was lower than that of 84% of the study’s other suburbs.

Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness gives appreciation to the local police force and says the city’s dedication to pursuing the highest standards of safety and quality of life is demonstrated by the MoneyGeek award.

“I’m incredibly proud of the work they have done for our community, from their role in developing the Indiana Gun Crimes Task Force to the work of our School Resource Officers in mentoring and keeping our kids safe,” Fadness said in a release Thursday.

Chief of the Fishers Police Department Ed Gebhart gives gratitude to the community and the personnel. According to Gebhardt, the distinction would not be possible without the daily efforts of FPD officers to maintain city safety.

“We will continue to hold to our policing values of protecting and serving our city, securing the future of our children, and supporting our officers to continue to achieve the highest standards,” Gebhardt said in a release.
