Do you think Marseilles is a safe place to live and visit?

Home security company SafeWise put out a list of the 50 safest cities in Illinois and Marseilles checks in at 32. In picking Marseilles, the list maker says “the snowy city of Marseilles has a strong community backbone that keeps this town happy and energetic, even in the face of tragedy”.

They point out that during last year’s flood, the American Legion of Marseilles hosted a pancake breakfast to brighten the spirits of victims and volunteers. SafeWise says Marseilles is one of the most optimistic cities in Illinois.

Factors like property crimes and violent crimes were factored into picking the safest cities. Far northwest Chicago suburb Round Lake Park was named the safest city in Illinois.
