Manassas, Manassas Park, and Dumfries were named among the top 20 safest cities in Virginia by Alarms.org and National Council for Home Safety and Security.
According to “The Safest Cities in Virginia 2017” list, Manassas Park was ranked #6, Dumfries was ranked #9, and Manassas was ranked #16. The top city was Bridgewater, Virginia.
Here’s the methodology behind the rankings, from their website:
To identify the safest cities in Virginia, we reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with our own population data and internal research. We eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 5,000. Note that our use of the word “cities” is versatile, refers to populations of 5,000 and over, and thus includes places with the words “town” and “township.”
