Rye has made it on the Safewise 100 Safest Cities in America list for 2017, landing at #13. Last year we were #19.
The survey shows three property crimes per 1,000 residents (that's 48 total) and 0.06 violent crimes per 1,000 (that's one violent crime total).
The survey says
"Rye, New York, is back on our list for the second year in a row and up six spots from its nineteenth spot in 2016. As the first settlement in Westchester county, Rye originated as a cattle and farming town, so it’s nice to see it’s still calm and peaceful in this modern age. Besides great police work that cuts down on crime, Rye has a Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Committee to improve safety features in the community and educate the public to avoid accidents. Crime isn’t the only thing that endangers communities, so we’re glad to see Rye takes other public safety issues seriously, too."
