Safewise.com, a web site which bills itself as the “the authority on safety and home security news,” had this to say about Upper Uwchlan Township’s low crime stats:
Coming in at number two is Upper Uwchlan Township, which is nestled on a plain between the Nantmeal Hills and the North Valley Hills.
While the name of this township is due to a spelling mistake by the post office in the 19th century, this little burg of just over 11,000 people makes few mistakes when it comes to the safety and security of its citizens.
With a crime rate of less than one percent, this township blows away the average American city crime rate of 3.12%. And Upper Uwchlan residents can sleep easy knowing there were no robberies, murders or car break-ins reported in 2011.
Home security, combined with a robust economy, make this township worth a look for people seeking a safe community for their family.
The number one safest Pennsylvanian county according to Safewise is Cecil Township southwest of Pittsburgh.
Other Chester County townships to make Safewise’ 50 Safest Cities in Pennsylvania list were Easttown Township (#27), Willistown Township (#28), Tredyffrin Township (#29), and Uwchlan Township (#32).
Safewise’s rankings is based on the company terms as the “most current” FBI crime statistics and only includes municipalities with at least 10,000 residents.
