For the fourth consecutive year, Irvine was rated the safest U.S. city with a population over 100,000. The city claimed bragging rights Monday after the FBI released crime statistics for 2007.

The agency looked at crimes of murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, auto theft and arson.

Irvine joined Gilbert, Ariz.; Bellevue, Wash.; Cary, N.C.; and Thousand Oaks as the five safest cities in the country.

Irvine officials credit making public safety a priority and the community's high standard of living for the success against crime.
