Current FBI Statistics Show Orland Park Safer Than Rankings Show

ORLAND PARK, IL (December 13, 2017) --- Orland Park was named among the 20 safest communities in the State of Illinois by Safe Home, Inc., a private company that promotes safety related programs and equipment.

"We know that Orland Park is a safe community," said Trustee Pat Gira, chair of the village's Public Safety Committee. "It's exciting to have the village recognized by an outside company; however, we know that our numbers are even better than what Safe Home reported."

Gira continued, "For example, Orland Park had the lowest number of violent crimes in 2016 according to the FBI Uniform Crime Report for cities over 50,000, the standard used by Safe Homes."

Orland Park Police Chief Tim McCarthy said, "We're proud that these statistics show that Orland Park is a very safe community and with its massive 12 million square feet of retail/commercial space provides one of the safest shopping experiences in Chicagoland."
