The city of Snoqualmie has been declared the ninth safest city out of 50 of Washington’s safest cities by the Safewise home security company.

Snoqualmie’s ranking was determined using an FBI crime report in combination with the city of Snoqualmie 2013 Snoqualmie Police Services Survey, which cited that 96 percent of residents feel safe or very safe living in Snoqualmie. A few other local cities that ranked high on the list include Duvall and Sammamish.

“I am very pleased and proud of the recent recognition which ranks the city of Snoqualmie as the ninth safest city in Washington,” said Snoqualmie Police Chief, Steve McCulley. “I believe strongly in a community that works together with law enforcement to help solve crime and make Snoqualmie a safer place to live. In order to commit to this philosophy, I will dedicate myself to answering the needs of the citizens and fostering their trust in the men and women of the Snoqualmie Police Department.”
