Carmel, with over 90,000 residents, reported just 13 violent crimes in 2017, an amazing statistic for a community our size.
This is a statistic that we take great pride in. The safety and security of our residents is of utmost importance to us. We take an active role in keeping crime low – we hire the best and brightest police officers, provide them with outstanding training and equipment, and take care to keep adequate numbers of police officers visible in the community.
In 2018, Safewise.com ranked Carmel as the 6th safest city in Indiana. Not only does this safety ranking provide peace of mind, it results in lower auto and home insurance rates — a hidden benefit of living in Carmel.
