The Milton Police Department is reporting that for the second straight year, the town has been named one of the “100 Safest Communities in America,” according to NeighborhoodScout.com.
In an announcement on their Facebook page, the department said the designation is based upon violent crime per 1,000 residents as well as the overall safety of a community. Milton moved up 40 positions from their 2013 standing on the list. The award affords Milton a “gold star standard” among the cities and towns of America.
“We want to thank all of our elected officials as well as our partners in law enforcement and every resident of Milton who takes the time to engage with us by phone, email and in person,” the announcement read. “The men and women of the Milton Police Department take great pride in the work we do protecting your well being 24/7/365. The safety and security of every home, business and school is our number one priority. Congratulations to all citizens of Milton on this well deserved award.”
