The SafeWise Report, the self proclaimed authority on safety and home security news says Bristol is the 74th most safest city in Connecticut.

Ridgefield ranked #1 in the state as the safest and Bristol’s closed neighbor on the list was Canton as the 13th most safest.

The site says “To identify the 20 safest cities in Connecticut, we reviewed the most recent FBI Crime Report statistics from 2014, along with population data. We eliminated all cities with fewer than 5,000 residents as well as any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI.”

Another safety/crime site called Neighborhood Scout, gave Bristol a crime index of 26 with 100 being the safest.

The company also provided the safest neighborhoods based on public crime statistics.

Neighborhood Scout placed downtown Bristol as the most crime ridden area and Chippens Hill as the safest.

The site says Bristol is unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Bristol is neither predominantly one nor the other.

Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bristol is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers.

Also of interest is that Bristol has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.”
