Eyewitness This: Southland dominates list of California's 50 safest cities

A report lists dozens of Southern California communities as the safest cities in the Golden State.

Safewise, a safety resource website, says Danville in the Bay Area took the top spot this year - followed by Irvine, Rancho Santa Margarita, Yorba Linda and Murrieta.

Other Southland cities in the top 15 include Rancho Palos Verdes, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, Chino Hills, Eastvale, Diamond Bar and Temecula. More than 50% of the list includes cities in Southern California.

Safewise compiled the list after analyzing the state's communities based on FBI crime reporting data. Each city that made the list had less than two violent crimes per 1,000 people.
