When Vero Beach Florida was selected as one the the "BEST Small Towns in America" and also one of the "Best places to retire" crime statistics were one part of the criteria for the selection process. Vero Beach was recognized for having a lower than average crime rate. This government website shows the most recent crime statistics http://www.fedstats.gov/mapstats/crime/county/12061.html
. You can also read first hand current information at the Vero Beach Police Department http://www.vbpd.org.
I also invite you to visit our website, http://www.My-Florida-Home.com
