36th Safest City In America
West Linn has been recognized as the 36th Safest City in the nation. Each year Location Inc., publishes a list of the top 100 Safest Cities in America, calculated on cities 25,000 or more population, and based on the total number of crimes per 1,000 residents. This is based on their research site, Neighborhood Scout. This year, West Linn was one of only two cities in Oregon to achieve this high rating. We were followed by Lake Oswego, which is rated 84th in the nation. In a letter from Location Inc., to Police Chief Terry Timeus, West Linn was recognized as having a vigilant police force, and the full commitment of our city’s residents.
