New Franklin ranks as one of the 100 Safest Cities in America
New Franklin made the list as one of the 100 Safest Cities in America, according to The SafeWise Report which was recently released. Here is what the report had to say about the City: “This ‘Safest City’ screams youthfulness, from its name—New Franklin—to its history—the city is one of Ohio's youngest municipalities. Indeed, community policing efforts even include the “Juvenile Diversion Program,” in which youth offenders' records are expunged in exchange for community service.”To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2013 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 10,000 people. A full list of 100 Safest Cities in America can be found at http://www.safewise.com/safest-cities-america.
