Safety is extremely important in figuring out where you want to live, work, and raise your family. This is why it is exciting to see one city here in the Land of Lincoln make it on the list of the 10 Safest Cities in America, spoiler alert... it's not Chicago.
Talk about your "good news/bad news" scenarios. The good news is that 6 Illinois cities, with populations of at least 10,000 people, are regarded among the safest cities in America by home security provider Safewise. The bad news? Rockford did not make the list.
