Nashville Named #30 of 50 Safest Cities in North Carolina 2014

The SafeWise Report Announces the 50 Safest Cities in North Carolina

 The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in North Carolina” report this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012 to analyze and rank these cities.  We look at crimes from part 1 of the FBI Unified Crime Report (UCR) reported crime data, which focuses on violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well as property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). From there, we calculate the chances of these crimes happening out of a thousand in order to level the playing field for cities of varying populations. From all the cities in North Carolina, we narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report. “It’s easy to see why families and businesses are flocking to North Carolina,” SafeWise security analyst Alexia Chianis said. “A pleasant year-round climate, an abundance of recreational opportunities, and especially safe streets are a few of the Tar Heel State’s many assets.”

Just off I-95 and less than one hour east of Raleigh, you’ll find this North Carolina gem. Safety focused, historic and inventive, Nashville is only three square miles but it’s big on smart programs that help community members bond. Founded in 1780, Nashville also boasts an unmatched collection of Victorian and Queen Anne style homes that add to its appeal. The Nashville Police Department clearly recognizes that its abilities are tied to its relationship with the community. From Coffee with a Cop to Badges and Books, the Nashville Police Department offers the community fun ways to get to know the officers that keep them safe. Settle in Nashville and you might be surprised to see a police officer leading a special story time and offering your kids free face painting.

To further enhance community relationships the police department offers an impressive project named Watchdog. The Watchdog project divides the town into “Zones” and assigns a patrol officer to each one. That officer takes charge of community services project in his “Zone” which helps him become more familiar with residents. Leading Safety Meetings, soliciting comments and concerns and developing community partnerships are a few of the Watchdog project’s goals. An innovative police department and concerned citizenry undoubtedly contribute to Nashville’s low crime rate.
