Georgetown is on the 2015 safest cities in Texas list, released last week by SafeWise, a home security company. Georgetown is ranked 27 among the 50 Safest Cities in Texas. The annual ranking is based on FBI Crime Report statistics.
According to the announcement, “Historic buildings, rows of blooming flowers, and an excellent safety record are just some of the reasons to pay attention to the city of Georgetown. For the second year in a row, Georgetown proved itself as one of the safest cities in Texas, thanks to factors like low reports of violent crime – just 71 in 2013.”
The description of Georgetown also points out the ways that the City takes care of our animals. “This city looks after all of its citizens, including those on four legs. Residents turn out in droves to support the Friends of the Georgetown Animal Shelter in their annual Art for Animals fundraiser. There’s no denying Georgetown is a great place to call home for everyone, even your furry friends.”
Note: as of 2022 Georgetown isn’t ranked anymore. Here’s the 2022 list from Safewise.
