Murrieta Safest City in Riverside County
Murrieta was ranked the safest city in Riverside County and 11th safest in California, according to a crime study conducted by Morgan Quitno Press, an independent research publisher.
Murrieta was also the 39th most crime-free U.S. city with populations of more than 75,000, according to the Lawrence, Kansas-based research firm.
Murrieta scored higher than places such as Newport Beach, Carlsbad and Boca Raton, Florida. In Riverside County, Corona was the 99th safest and Temecula came in at 116th in the country.
Murrieta Police Chief Mark Wright said the favorable ranking was a direct result of a community-wide effort.
"There are many factors that contribute to a city's safety -- demographics, the local economy, and the relationships between the citizens and their police," he said. "Our success is based on a true partnership we have established with our residents, our schools and our business community."
Proactive and hands-on policing also contributed to the low crime rate. Wright cited several effective community crime-reduction programs including Gang Reduction and Intervention, Crime Free Multi Housing, School Resource Officers, Task Forces, and strong working relationship with non-profit community service organizations, the school district, youth and seniors, as well as the business community.
Separately, Money magazine recently ranked Murrieta among the top U.S. cities for job growth. The magazine reported that Murrieta experienced the 5th fastest job growth among U.S. cities from 2000 to 2005.

Equipment: They supply the helmets or you can bring in your own. You have to wear closed to shoes, but if you forget them at home you can always rent them at the track/
