3rd Safest City in Northeast Region

Stamford, Connecticut – Mayor Dannel P. Malloy announced Friday that Stamford is currently ranked as the 9th safest city in the United States and 3rd safest in the Northeast region. This ranking is based upon preliminary FBI crime statistics for calendar year 2008 released on June 1, 2009.

The FBI defines cities as those municipalities with populations of 100,000 or more. There are 268 communities across the country that reported data to the FBI from which these statistics were compiled. Stamford’s designation as one of the top eleven safest cities in the nation has been consistent for 8 consecutive years.

Stamford is still the safest city in Connecticut, far outpacing Bridgeport, Waterbury and Hartford. New Haven did not report crime data to the FBI. Stamford’s total crime rate per 100,000 residents has decreased 62.5% since 1995.

“This is an extraordinary achievement by the men and women of the Stamford Police Department,” said Mayor Malloy. “I am very proud of our police department personnel and the entire community of Stamford, which has always worked in partnership with our police officers. I commend each and every member of the police department for a job well done.”
