Lakewood Safest Town in McHenry County

I was on the Chicago Tribune web site looking at how bad the snow storm was going to be Saturday night and stumbled on these crime statistics.

If you click on them, you can see them better.

Come to find out, my little Village of Lakewood had the least crime per 1,000 residents.

The worst was Wonder Lake with 41 per 1,000.

Right below Wonder Lake was Woodstock at 36.5/1,000.

Crystal Lake was third worst at 30 per 1,000 people.

Of the bigger towns, Lake in the Hills showed the least crime on a per capita basis—9/1,000.

Right next door in Algonquin the rate was 19.7 per thousand, more than twice as high.
