Security and surveillance company ranks Northport the second safest city in America

Village by: Chrissy Ruggeri, January 20, 2022

Northport was declared the second safest city in America by CCTV Camera World, a leading CCTV (closed-circuit television) equipment distributor in the USA.

Strong messages of praise and approval flooded local Facebook pages today, as Northport, New York was declared the second safest city in America by CCTV Camera World, a leading CCTV (closed-circuit television) equipment distributor in the USA.

The Founder and CEO of CCTV Camera World, Ray Ansari, published on January 12 an article that highlighted the 100 safest cities in America, and according to his data, Northport ranks number two. CCTV Camera World is a private security and surveillance systems company founded in 2009.

Ansari examined the FBI data on crime rates from 2020 and 2021 to formulate his rankings. “The rankings were based on the total crime rate in 7,000 cities across the country,” he wrote. “The total crime rate is all crimes such as violent crimes (murder, rape, assault, etc.) as well as property crimes (burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson).”

Ansari found that New York state has ten of the 25 safest cities in America, with Northport ranking as the second safest overall. Northport had a total crime rate of 27.56 per 100,000 people, according to the company’s findings. Ansari also noted the ten safest big cities in America, with New York City being the third safest, after El Paso in Texas and San Diego in California. In 2020, New York City’s crime rate was below the national average.

The number one spot on the list went to Wayland, Massachusetts, which has a population of 14,000 people and reported one crime, an aggravated assault. Cities with very small populations that reported zero crimes were not included in the report and therefore omitted from the list because they lacked actual data from the FBI. All but one Illinois city was excluded from the list because they did not have arson or larceny-theft data, which is “by far the most common single type of crime,” according to Ansari.

At the end of his report, Ansari provides tips to keep your home and family safe, with installing a smart security camera (and a link to the CCTV Camera World website) as the first recommendation.
