Greenwich and Fairfield are included in the latest “30 Safest Cities to Raise a Child” list by home security and safety brand SafeWise.

To compile the report, SafeWise analyzed FBI violent crime data, sex offender populations, state graduation rates and school rankings, and factored in after-school programs and open spaces. All cities recognized have a population of at least 10,000.

At #3, Greenwich was cited for “exceptionally low crime rates, a low sex offender population, and stellar education” as well as “its strong library system.”

In #12 Fairfield, the report said, “You won’t find anything but the best in its public school system,” noting the city’s anti-bullying laws and policies as well as a student/parent portal which allows account holders to track assignments, grades, attendance records, and school communications.

The report further noted that, on a state-wide level, Connecticut ranks sixth for best schools.

Topping the 30 Safest Cities was Carmel, Ind., followed by Fishers, Ind.
