Lakewood Township named as one of the 100 Safest Cities in America

According to a report, Lakewood is one of the top 100 safest cities in America.

The report listed Lakewood number 63 on the Top 100 list, with 2016 violent crimes at 170, and property crimes at 1.076.

The reports used the following methodology:

“We reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with our own internal research. We eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 50,000. The remaining cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, robbery), property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft), and officer count. Note that these variables were weighted, with violent crimes accounting for the majority of the total due to their severity.”

Describing Lakewood, the report wrote, “Lakewood Township is located in Ocean County with 95,743 residents. For recreation, there is Lake Shenandoah Park which offers play areas for kids as well as many boating activities. Ocean County Park is also located on the lake and offers places to picnic and hiking trails. To the west, there is Lake Carasaljo which offers an amphitheatre as well as a playground and is located near Georgian Court University.”
