Fremont less crime-ridden than most

Congressional Quarterly, a slightly more reliable source for stats than Men’s Health, has released its crime rankings for cities with more than 75,000 people. That means no Union City or Newark.

Fremont was ranked 90th out of  393.

There’s a lot less crime than in Berkeley, which ranked 294th and Oakland, which was 391th. Yikes.

The safest city is Colonie, NY, a pleasant suburb of Albany, where it’s sometimes too cold to start cars let alone steal them five months out of the year.

Livermore, Sunnyvale and Vacaville all had lower crime rates than Fremont.
