I heard on the news this morning that Roswell was just listed in the top 20 safest cities in the country. Just thought some people here would like to know.

I heard it on the news this morning, so I don't have a source you can really look up. I imagine it's listed somewhere on the web but you may have to do some digging.

It is on the front page of ajc. Roswell is ranked No. 18 safest and Atlanta is ranked 17 worst.

I think that the list is only for city greater than 75,000. I can think that a lot of other places in atlanta MSA that's could be on the list if including <75000.

I heard it on the news too, but I wouldn't start leaving my doors unlocked just yet. As a matter of fact I was quite surprised. I've lived in the Atlanta area for the past 26 years and a lot of "previously" safe areas are not that way anymore. It was in a very nice office park in Roswell just under 2 months ago that a pregnant woman was shoved into the floorboard of her car and when the police started chasing the car jacker, he jumped out of the moving vehicle and the car crashed into a tree. Thank God that the lady and her unborn baby were ok. I don't believe any city is truly safe anymore.

These 'best of' lists make good copy, but they're based on specific statistical information. Visiting, renting, and speaking to people who have lived in the area you're considering is a better way to go. I have (senior age) relatives in Roswell who've been living there for over thirty years - I hear all the stories believe me. Roswell is unrecognizable to what it was in the 1970's and 1980's for better and worse. In reality, Roswell is no better crime-wise than many towns of similar size - makes good chamber of commerce fodder for any town on a 'best' list. Go rent for 6-12 months in Roswell and keep in mind that even this tact isn't foolproof. I moved to two places that changed tremendously in just one year. I left those areas which were also on 'Best of' lists. I don't give these lists much worth. I've spoken elsewhere on this forum about Roswell - good schools (wasn't good in the 1970's believe me, I went to school there), nice parks, quaint old town area, inventory of aging homes & newer homes in developments with a sign & stone gate at the entrance, and traffic/driving/traffic/driving ad naseum.
