Rather you are raising a family, trying to find somewhere to settle down for retirement, or just wanting to move to another area, safety is without a doubt a high priority for just about everyone. A major national publication just published an article naming the safest towns for each state and in this article, we will take a look at which town in NC was named the safest.

On January 31, 2023, moneygeek.com published an article titled, "Small Cities and Towns Are Getting Safer, While Violent Crime in Large Cities Is On the Rise". While the article started off highlighting the "15 Safest Small cities And Towns In America", it also highlighted the safest towns for each state. One might ask, "what makes a town safe?" According to a similar article, the key factors are violent crime rate, nonviolent crime rate, median household income, poverty rate, cost of living, and population density.
