CQ Press, who publishes the annual City Crime Rankings just released their annual report – the Town of Cary received the following distinguished rankings:
Safest Municipality in North Carolina for the 11th straight year.
Safest Municipality in the South East.
5th Safest in the Nation for populations between 100,000 and 499,999. (Cary”s current population estimated to be just under 140,000)
19th Safest in the Nation out of entire list without regard to population size.
While the rankings are very impressive it was noted that the town’s ranking dropped from the previous year high ranking of 3rd safest based on population and 15th safest overall. One reason for the decline – the 3 Cary women who died at the hand of domestic violence this past year – which is very unusual for Cary – a town which usually will not have a single murder over the course of a year.
Having lived in the Cary area my entire life I sometimes take for granted how safe our Town really is. The Cary Police strive hard to keep it that way! Which brings up a great takeaway point – don’t speed in Cary! The police have the time to write speeding tickets!
