Connecticut is one of the original colonies of America and where George W. Bush was born. This state is steeped in history and has beautiful scenery. Nearly every street will have some historical occurrence on it, and the leaves changing colors in the fall are a sight to behold. On top of all this, Connecticut is home to the number one safest city in the nation – Greenwich.
The 25 safest cities in Connecticut all have impressive safety ratings, ranging from 92.71 to 62.45. The overall crime stats in this state are on the lower end compared to the national averages. Most of the cities in Connecticut have been seeing a decline in violent and property crimes, or no change at all to their already low crime rates. Four of Connecticut’s cities are in the top 100 safest cities in the nation, with another 12 in the top 500 safest cities.
Let’s go over Greenwich a bit more, which came out as the safest city in the nation according to our analysis. Why is this city so safe? One of the main reasons would be that Greenwich is the wealthiest town in the state, with the median income at $167,825 for a family. Greenwich is at the southernmost point of the state, near the New York border and across the bay from Long Island.
The next few safest cities are up the coast from Greenwich, including Stamford (86.27), Fairfield (86.44), and West Haven (86.27). Most of the safest cities are along the coast, but further inland there is Manchester and Hartford that were in the top 25 safest cities as well.
