Parsippany Ranked as 37th Safest Community in New Jersey

A home security website conducted an investigation and reviewed FBI data to compile the list of 50 Safest Communities in New Jersey.

Parsippany was ranked No. 37 on a list of the 50 Safest Communities in New Jersey compiled by SafeWise.com, a website that compares home security options.

According to SafeWise.com, they used data from the FBI’s 2011 Crime in the U.S. Report with their own investigation to compile the list.

“Lead by a government that understands accountability, the safe community of Parsippany-Troy Hills Township cares about its citizens’ concerns. That could be one reason why it enjoys nominal crime,” reads the article. “An officially recognized chapter of the International MOMS Club, women of all ages and backgrounds join together to enjoy engaging speakers, park play dates, family parties, moms night out and arts and crafts.”

Parsippany was ranked ninth among Morris County communities. Leading the top three for Morris County towns were Washington, who took the No. 4 spot, No. 9 Madison and No. 18 Morris Township.

Last year, Patch put together a list of safest big towns based off of state police crime reports from 2011 and 2012 on towns with more than 40,000. Parsippany came in at No. 5 on that list.

Would be even better if New Jersey didn't discriminate against law abiding gun owners obtaining concealed carry permits. Every state that has made their laws "shall issue" have seen a decrease in crime and the FBI statistics prove that out. Will New Jersey ever get out of the dark ages when it comes to proactive laws to allow citizens to protect themselves? Probably never.
