This NH city has been named the safest in the state
New Hampshire is a great place to live! We have it all. The ocean, the mountains, the lakes, Story Land, America’s first library, I could go on and on! What about taxes? Who needs it! It is a great place to raise a family. Of course, when you are planning to relocate anywhere you would ideally like to buy / rent property in a safe city with low crime rate. Did you know that of the 50 states, New Hampshire has the second lowest rate for violent crime and property crime according to safewise.com? New England as a whole has one of the lowest crime rates in the country!

4. New Boston
Some members of the Danville NH community Facebook page were surprised to see their city ranked # 1! Some wondered what data had been collected to draw these conclusions. GREAT QUESTION! According to the article, they analyzed statistics from FBI criminal reports. They estimated the number of violent crimes as well as property crimes that were committed in each city during the year. Of course, crime rates went down during the pandemic because no one left their homes. I guess it’s hard to rob someone’s house when there’s always someone in it! Localities with less than 2,500 inhabitants have been excluded from the list as they are considered rural.
