A recent ranking of the safest cities placed Colleyville as the 11th safest city in the United States.
Neighborhood Scout, a neighborhood-search website, ranked the safest cities in the nation for 2017 using a metric of the total number of property and violent crimes per 1,000 residents from FBI crime data.
Colleyville is safer than 89-percent of cities in the country with a population over 25,000, according to the data.
In a recent crime presentation, Police Chief Mike Holder noted a 60-percent drop in violent crime in Colleyville in 2016 compared to 2015.
The city did see an increase in residential burglaries in 2016, which police attribute to a rise in shed burglaries. The city’s property crime rate remains well below the Texas average, according to Neighborhood Scout.
Oak Ridge, Tenn. took the list’s top spot. The next Texas city on the list is Little Elm, which came in at 22.
