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.”
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.
