O’Fallon’s reputation as a safe city was recently bolstered by the November 30 release of the 25 Safest Cities in Missouri Report for 2015. Compiled by analysts with SafeWise, a home security industry broker, the report ranked O’Fallon among Missouri’s safest cities. With a population of 84,000, O’Fallon also is the only City with a population of over 50 thousand to be included in the listing. To read the report, visit

www.safewise.com/blog/safest-cities-missouri-2015.

To determine its ranking of safest cities, SafeWise reviewed FBI Crime Report data from 2013, the most recent statistics that are available. Considering only cities with a minimum population of 3,000, SafeWise took into account the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder rape and robbery) along with property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft), and then calculated the probability of these crimes occurring per 1,000 people.

FRAUD ALERT - 11/15/2015 - We have gotten two reports tonight from residents of St. Charles County stating someone called them purporting to be a Lt. Johnson with the O'Fallon Police. The caller stated they we calling the victim to collect money for a bench warrant for their arrest. The caller informed them they could pay off their warrant through PayPal.

This is absolutely a fraudulent request and a scam. We have no Lt. Johnson and we would never call requesting payment for a warrant over the phone. If you get a similar call hang up immediately. If you are able to gain a call back number please contact your local police department.
