Irvine Number One- For the Third Time

According to an article in the OC Register, Irvine tops the list of safest large cities in California. This year saw a decrease in reported violent crimes.

Meanwhile, cities like Huntington Beach, Fullerton, and Orange saw an increase in certain types of crimes, such as property and violent crime.

So, what exactly is Irvine doing right? Is it the people that live there? Is it the police presence? Is it a combination of those things and more?

Is there a city or area in OC that you avoid because you feel it is unsafe?

    Irvine’s lack of crime has something to do with the paint. Have you ever noticed that every home and building in Irvine is painted the same color? “Starbucks Beige”, I think.

    Welcome to Irvine, prepare to be assimilated.
