So we aren’t safe? Tacoma and Olympia miss cut for 50 safest Washington cities list.

BY CRAIG HILL
chill@thenewstribvne.com
The South Sound did not have strong showing in a recent ranking of the 50 safest cities in Washington.
Tacoma, Olympia and Puyallup all missed the cut.
King County’s Duvall and Sammamish topped the list while the Franklin County city of Connell was third. DuPont ranked fourth and was the top South Sound city. The list was compiled by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, a trade association for alarm installers and related businesses. FBI crime data was used to determine the average crime rate per 1,000 people.
Dupont averaged 7.92 violent crimes per 1,000 people in 2016. Pullman rounded out the top 5.
The other South Sound cities on the list: Steilacoom (12th), Orting (14th), Maple Valley (19th), Pacific (20th), Buckley (29th), Edgewood (30th), Bonney Lake (36th), University Place (38th) and Enumclaw (45th). Continue Reading

Press Release- Orting in Top 20 Safest Cities in Washington

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The SafeWise Report Announces the 20 Safest Cities in Washington – City of Orting in Top 20. The SafeWise Report released its “20 Safest Cities in Washington” report on May 22, 2017. The City of Orting made the top twenty, coming in at 19, which is a move upward from 47, or 28 spaces, from the previous year. The report states “Cities across Washington are coming together to create inclusive communities that embrace all citizens of different ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds. These initiatives work to establish communities ‘without boundaries where people take care of each other regardless of their differences.’’’ The Orting Police Chief stated, he is very proud of the efforts of his officers working collaboratively with our citizens, which places Orting in this respected category.

To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2015 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 2,000 people. “Washington’s safest cities are proactive about keeping all citizens safe. Across the state, they have enacted initiatives to make sure all residents are taken care of—regardless of race, ethnicity, or cultural background,” reports SafeWise Security Analyist Rebecca Edwards. “Comprehensive safety awareness like this is the type of thinking that helped each of our safest Washington cities come in well below the national averages for both violent and property crimes.”
