Safest Pennsylvania Cities
Penn Township ranked as one of the '50 Safest Cities in Pennsylvania' - a list compiled by SafeWise. A community-focused security organization, which provides home security tips and tools, the most recent news in the safety industry, and helps homeowners compare security providers, so they can protect themselves and their homes.
SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2011, population, and other ranking factors - like unique safety initiatives and security programs implemented within the past few years. From the hundreds of cities in Pennsylvania, SafeWise narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to how the township met the criteria.
“It’s refreshing to see so many caring communities working together to make sure their towns are safe," SafeWise security analyst Rebecca Edwards said. “Most of these Pennsylvania cities have crime rates far below the national average, which is a testament to the difference conscientious citizens can make.”
