“According to SafeHome.org report, California is more worried about safety than the rest of the country, but its safest cities such as Palmdale boast crime rates well below both state and national averages,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “It’s a testament to the ongoing efforts of working as a team --- City staff, law enforcement, and our residents. We need to remain vigilant and,  as always, if you see something, say something.”

“When you think of the quality of life amenities that make a city desirable to live, work, and play in, public safety is always at the top of the list,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “Our City Council has made public safety our top priority, whether it is addressing crime issues, or the current coronavirus pandemic. We will continue to move forward demonstrating Palmdale Cares and is a great place to call home.”
