2016 Safest Places in New Jersey

by Susan Gulliford

Nearly nine million Americans call New Jersey home and having a low crime community is important to them. The ValuePenguin team analyzed the most recent FBI Crime Report to determine the safest places in the Garden State. These 346 cities and townships with populations of at least 5,000 had crime scores that ranged from 24 to 6,790.

The key takeaway is that people in New Jersey have a number of low-crime communities. The state’s average crime score was 897. When ValuePenguin conducted similar studies of North Carolina and Pennsylvania, it found average crime scores of 2,480 and 1,169, respectively. You can review the full report for more information. 

5 Safest Places in New Jersey

These cities had an average crime score of 78, which was 91% lower than their typical peer in the state. With some of its lowest total violent crime rates, these five are the safest places in the state.

1. New Hanover Township 

This small township of 8,080 in Burlington County takes the top spot. In addition to a low rate of violent crime, the community had the lowest rate of property crime. Overall, the crime rate was a whopping 97% lower than its New Jersey peers. North Hanover Township is a four-minute drive from Fort Dix and a 10-minute drive to McGuire Air Force Base. The median household income here was 15% higher than the median for the state.

2. Old Tappan

This community, approximately 30 miles from New York City in Bergen County, has a police force with a core value to provide outstanding service and a safe place to live. Old Tappan tied for the lowest rate of violent crime, and it had the fifth-lowest rate of property crime in this research. It is an affluent community with a median household income approximately $44,000 above the state’s median, a low poverty rate, and a high percent of college graduates (55%). 

3. River Vale Township

It is the second Bergen County community to make the top five. River Vale Township offers residents close proximity to New York City and tree-lined suburban streets. It had only one violent crime reported in the year examined and the second-lowest rate of property crime. River Vale Township is another affluent community with a high median household income ($131,764), high homeownership rate (90%), and a high percentage of college graduates (62%). 

4. Norwood 

The smallest community in the top five is Norwood. It had only one violent crime reported in 2014, and Norwood had the fourth-lowest rate of property crime. Norwood is approximately 20 miles from Manhattan in New York City. The community has a median household income approximately $26,000 above the state’s median household income and a low poverty rate. 

5. North Caldwell

This Essex County community is the fourth New York City suburb to make the top five. North Caldwell tied Old Tappan for the lowest rate of violent crime, and it had the sixth-lowest rate of property crime in this study. North Caldwell is very affluent with a median household income 2.7 times the state’s median household income. It also had a highly educated population: 68% of the population has a bachelor’s degree. 

Population Breakdown

Although we adjusted for population in our crime rankings, it is still difficult to compare a small town to a large city. To account for this fact, we separated the safest cities into three categories: towns with populations between 5,000 and 15,000, midsize cities with populations 15,000 and 30,000 and larger cities with populations greater than 30,000. Here are our findings:

Year-over-year Change

New Jersey exhibited a great deal of consistency from 2015 to 2016. North Hanover Township and Old Tappan were number one and number two respectively in both years. In both years, four out of the five safest places were in northern New Jersey. 

The ValuePenguin team changed the size categories slightly this year. Therefore, it is hard to obtain exact comparisons, but one fact stood out. In both 2015 and 2016, small townships and boroughs (with populations of less than 15,000) dominated the top five safest places.

There was no FBI data to use for Camden (2015’s least safest city) in this year’s study. However, the three cities with the highest crime scores this year are all famous tourist destinations (Asbury Park, Atlantic City and Wildwood). These same cities were in the bottom five last year. This fact indicates that communities that experience surges in population have unique crime challenges combatting crime.

Methodology

To rank these places, we collected data from the 2014 FBI crime statistics by city, which provides the most recent crime data available. Not every town participates in this report and we also excluded towns with fewer than 5,000 residents because towns with small populations are more sensitive to crime score fluctuations for fewer crimes committed. The raw data report included property crimes (burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson), and violent crimes (murder/manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) from all law enforcement agencies that chose to partake in the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting program.

We standardized the data to reflect violent and property crimes per 100,000, to account for population. Then, we aggregated a “crime score” by weighting violent crime at 80% and property crime at 20%. Though property crime is more prevalent, we figured that violent crime is more concerning to town residents. Then we adjusted the crime score for population size, giving more slack to larger cities. Finally, we ranked the cities based on their crime scores.

Here is an alphabetical table of all cities included with their ranks, making it easier to compare different cities. See where your city lies!
