February 19, 2014 at 9:00 PM

WESTFIELD, NJ —Neighborhood research site NeighborhoodScout has ranked Westfield the 30th Safest City in America, Councilwoman Jo Ann Neylan announced at Tuesday’s town council meeting.

NeighborhoodScout’s research reveals the 100 safest cities in America with 25,000 or more people based on the total number of property and violent crimes per 1,000 residents.

Westfield Chief of Police David Wayman received a letter dated Feb. 14 from Location, Inc., President and CEO Andrew Schiller informing him of the ranking.

 “We know that the success of any crime prevention strategy requires a resourceful, vigilant police force and the full commitment of a city’s residents. When a community actively participates in the safety measures established by law enforcement, together they build a culture of security and self-confidence that’s reflected in the health of the housing market andlocal economy,” the letter states.
