Bergenfield listed among "100 Safest Cities in America"

The SafeWise Report released its “100 Safest Cities in America” report this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2013 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 10,000 people.

“Widening the safest cities concept from a state-by-state analysis to include all of America seemed like the next logical step at SafeWise,” SafeWise security analyst Mike Strayer said. “That said, I think it’s safe to say we didn’t expect to see so many innovative, community-safety programs thriving all around the U.S. independently of one another.”

About SafeWise
SafeWise is a community-focused security organization committed to increasing safety education, awareness, and preparedness. We help our users compare security options in an informative and pressure-free environment so they can make the choice that’s right for their family. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the safest cities reports, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
