MENIFEE – The city of Menifee has recently been recognized as one of the “Safest Cities in California” with a population of at least 50,000 residents by Safe Home, a professional review company. The rankings wer analyzed using the latest FBI crime statistics, crime trends, population density, population trends, unemployment rate, median income and education level within each city.
“We are proud to be recognized as one of California’s safest cities by Safe Home, as my colleagues on the city council and I have been working hard to increase the quality of life for our residents.” Mayor Neil Winter said. “Public Safety is just one of the many components that contribute to a great quality of life, and thanks to Measure DD, the one-cent sales tax increase approved by Menifee voters, the city was able to increase critical public safety services and begin to address our road conditions and infrastructure projects in the city. This distinction is proof that the city council’s policy changes were warranted with maintaining Menifee as a safe, clean and vibrant community, which was also the goal of Measure DD.”
Revenues from Measure DD, the 1 percent sales tax approved by Menifee voters in November 2016, are required to remain local and are used to plan for the future and to prevent cuts to city services such as public safety, road maintenance and repairs, infrastructure and other general service needs.
