every year publications like Forbes, Time, CNN, Money magazine and others post their "safest cities" or "best places to live" surveys. Time and time again we see the same cities surface to the top of the lists. Plano, Allen, Frisco, Lucas, Fairview, Little Elm, and Prosper are among those that float to the top. Honestly, I cant think of a city in northern Collin County that would be considered unsafe.
Anytime you have a major metropolitan city like Dallas or Arlington or Ft. Worth, you will see more crime, that is why suburbs like these tend to attract more families and children and elderly citizens.
