DENVILLE, NJ -- Denville is among seven Morris County towns ranked as one of the top 100 safest communities in the United States, according to Safewise.

The SafeWise annual national security survey listed Mount Olive (#12), Washington Township (#24), Jefferson Township (#28), Randolph (#33), Roxbury (#40), Denville (#46) and Morris Township (#69) as towns that are the safest place to live in the nation.

“This is an opportunity to recognize police officers, city officials and neighborhood watch leaders for their efforts. It’s a great chance to shine a light on a municipality's continuing commitment to public safety,” said Safewise Communications Manager Sage Singleton.
