We told you earlier this week about a study that named Essex, Vermont, among the safest communities in the country.
Home security and safety company SafeWise ranked the top 30 safest towns in the country to raise a child. They listed Essex as number two.
We visited Essex Police to see their reaction to the report and find out what they say plays a role in this success.
“We want our kids to be safe. Parents here are fantastic with their kids. The schools are great, the rec department is great and we have outside resources like Howard Center, DCF, they help us, too,” Essex Police Cpl. Kurt Miglinas said.
They also gave credit to surrounding police departments helping in emergency situations in the village and town of Essex.
Milton was ranked number 23 on that list.
