[ARCHIVED] Parents, rejoice: Allen included in "safest cities" for kids

Playground at Celebration Park

A new report by Safewise ranked Allen #26 in the list of Safest Cities to Raise a Child.

The report was created using FBI crime data, with special attention given to property crime, violent crime, and sex offenders information.

"The top 50 safest cities for families see far less criminal activity than the national average...[with] far lower populations and significantly reduced violent crime, property crime, and sex offender rates," explained the report. "And just because these populations are smaller doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get a taste of big city living either—many of these cities are close enough to urban centers to commute."
