In a report by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, Sanibel is the 7th safest city in the state. With a 6% fall in crime in 2016, the city experienced the lowest crime record in the past 13 years! There were no violent crimes reported last year, with “property” crimes, such as burglary and thefts, making up the majority of incidents.
Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane commented, “Our community places the highest priority on the personal safety of our citizens. We consider community safety an investment not an expenditure; an investment in our daily quality of life as well as our property values.”
Sanibel is on the right track, and the community is dedicated to improving the quality of life for visitors and residents to the island. Families can sleep soundly after a day of fun in the sun at the beach or enjoying the many kid-friendly activities.
Come visit Sanibel Island, and experience the uncrowded beaches, art galleries and local restaurants for a relaxing vacation. Book your dream vacation condo and stay in quiet communities or resort-style condominium complexes. Either way, you’re going to have a great time in the 7th Safest City in Florida.
