The SafeWise Report Announces the 50 Safest Cities in Washington:
Pullman Ranks #4

The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in Washington” list this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012, population, and other ranking factors, like unique safety initiatives and security programs implemented within the past few years. From the hundreds of cities in Washington, SafeWise narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to how the city met their criteria.  “It’s great to know the Pacific Northwest offers so many safe communities and breathtaking scenery,” SafeWise security analyst Rebecca Edwards said. “With low crime rates and an abundance of community pride, these Washington cities know how to take care of their own.”

SafeWise rated the City of Pullman as the 4th safest city in Washington with the following comments:

“Our number four safest city is nestled amid rolling hills in the heart of Palouse country. Home to Washington State University, Pullman cares as much about the safety of its citizens as it does about how the Cougars are doing on the football field. Boasting no reported murders for the past seven years and some of the best schools in the state, Pullman offers a lot to families looking for a safe, wholesome community to call home.

This small, college town makes the most of the surrounding natural beauty with 14 parks, multiple walking paths and vast green spaces that offer everything the outdoor enthusiast could want. And a philosophy of community policing ensures a safe and secure environment for residents and visitors alike.”
