Cary safest town of its population size per FBI report.
“Reports keep rolling in about the high standards of living and business opportunities in Cary. But one of the biggest accolades comes from an FBI report which shows Cary is the safest town of its population size….
…Cary has been labeled the safest town in years past and a recent report on cities for drivers had Cary scoring the best when it came to the risk of motor vehicle theft. Also, a report by ApartmentAdvisor found Cary to be one of the safest towns to live alone.
…There are a variety of reasons why Cary is such a safe community. It has more economic opportunity than many other towns and cities, with a 3.8 percent unemployment rate, compared to North Carolina’s 5.5 percent rate according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Cary also has a 6.7 percent poverty rate compared to 17.2 percent statewide, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
This has been reflected in several other studies, whether it is the recent Money Magazine article that named Cary as the best place to live in North Carolina or one that named Cary as one of the most successful towns nationwide.
Another important factor is the Cary Police Department’s clearance rate for crimes. Starting in 2012, Cary’s clearance rate did not dip below 70 percent for violent crimes. By comparison, the FBI’s 2015 report shows a nationwide clearance rate of 46 percent for violent crimes…” as reported by Cary Citizen.
