Longboat Key Recognized as One of Florida’s Safest Cities

Longboat Key has been named one of the top 5 safest cities in Florida in a 2018 report published by The Home Security Advisor.

“In our experience, the towns, cities and communities listed in our Top 50 share a number of qualities of which their residents should be proud.”

The Home Security Advisor site states that “Strong leadership, dedicated law enforcement and active citizenship are the key ingredients that combine to make these communities among the safest and most desirable places to reside and raise a family.”

The Home Security Advisor rankings were calculated using the 2016 FBI Uniform Crime Report results with respect to towns and cities with 5,000 residents or higher, who reported their crime data.

These figures were weighted in order to accurately indicate the seriousness of the criminal activity. Violent crimes were factored by .60 and property crimes by .40.

This number would be then divided by the population in the community and normalized to reflect weighted criminal offenses per 100,000.

The following is the list of the top 10 safest cities in Florida according to Home Security Advisors:
