Niles, Michigan, is a small city that lies mainly in Berrien County, which is in the southwestern corner of Michigan, although a very small portion of the city extends into neighboring Cass County. Niles lies on the banks of the St. Joseph River; it is a very old community, sited on the location of a French fort, Fort St. Joseph, that was established in 1691. It was later held by British forces, and was even held for a short time by Spanish forces during the Revolutionary War, before the United States won its independence. This colorful history has earned Niles the moniker "City of Four Flags." The population of Niles is 11,600. Yet despite this modest population, the crime rate in Niles has been consistently higher than the national average, and research indicates that there are 123 registered sex offenders living within the city of Niles, making the ratio of residents to sex offenders a very high 92 to one.
