It is very interesting to see that 5 different regions are represented in this list of the ten safest places. This wide distribution reinforces our data that shows skill is the single biggest factor in keeping a property or community safe. If the safest places were all in one region then it would be much clearer that the quality of the policing, the economy or the demographics alone are the biggest reasons why crime in one place is higher than in other places.

Taxpayers Wanting to Improve Their Safety

What we uncovered after analyzing thousands of property crimes is that most home owners have very poor information regarding what truly keeps them safe.  The majority find out they had flaws that criminals used to their advantage, only after they became a victim.  

Making it even more difficult was that getting the skills required to keep a property safe were in unconventional and counter intuitive places.  

To help identify where criminals will use common flaws in your home security to get away with property crime I created a free self-assessment any home owner can use to eliminate their risk.  Take the free 60 second Quiz to learn your Home Security Score.
