WESTON, Conn. -- Weston ranks among the top ten "Safest Cities in America," according to a new report by Safewise .

Last year, it was number 15; this year it has climbed to number 6.

The town was rated favorably for its lack of violent crimes and proactive safety programs like Weston’s CodeRED emergency notification system which sends alerts to residents in case of severe weather or local crime.

The report also cited how Weston has adapted to its environment on a variety of levels, noting, in particular, its forestry grant to buy off-road utility vehicles and specially outfitted SUVs to reach people in all sorts of terrain, so help is never far away.

SafeWise compares crime rates to a city’s population to find safety rankings. To determine the Safest Cities in America, it considered all communities with at least 10,000 people and added local public safety and community health programs to the mix.
