To identify the 10 safest cities in Pennsylvania, Safewise.com reviewed the most recent FBI crime report statistics, along with population data. During this review, all cities with fewer than five thousand residents, as well as any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI, were eliminated.
The remaining cities were evaluated based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny theft, and motor-vehicle theft) in each city. To further level the playing field, the likelihood of these crimes occurring out of a thousand people in each city was calculated.
Kennett Township had no violent crimes and no property crimes during the period evaluated by Safewise.com.
“The Kennett schools and community have been a great fit for my family,” comments Dr. Barry Tomasetti, superintendent of the Kennett Consolidated School District. “Having two boys who have graduated from Kennett High School and one who is a senior this year, we have had the opportunity to become well acquainted with the many benefits this area has to offer. Great schools manned by outstanding teachers and building administrators and being one of the ‘coolest towns’ in America make the Kennett area an attractive place to raise a family.”
