Glen Cove is the seventh safest city in New York, at least according to a recent report by SafeWise Security Systems.
The Salt Lake City-based home-security provider deemed Glen Cove seventh among 50 New York cities, praising this North Shore enclave for its “water recreation,” including the city’s “full-service marinas, yacht clubs and boat launch ramps.”
The report is based on the FBI’s 2011 Crime in the U.S. Report as well as the company’s own research since from the past two years.
Topping the New York list is Floral Park, which is ranked the safest community. Also included are Port Washington (number 4), Long Beach (10), Lynbrook (11), Rockville Centre (29) and Garden City (30).
The survey praised Glen Cove’s “holistic approach to educating students and pioneering programs that encourage children to become involved in the community,” and noted that the city was recognized as one of the “100 Best Communities for Young People” by America’s Promise Alliance.
According to the research used by SafeWise’s in this report, fewer than “20 violent crimes, no murders and no rapes were reported to law enforcement in 2011.”
