Orono picked as one of top ten safest cities in Maine

ORONO - Orono is among the safest cities in Maine for 2018.

That's according to the national council for home safety and security. They released their list of the top ten earlier today.

 

Orono placed second, outranked only by Kennebunk which came in first.

 

Orono was followed by Wells, Gorham, York, Falmouth, Windham, Brunswick, Saco and Scarborough.

 

The National Council for Home Safety and Security said they picked the safest cities after reviewing the most recent FBI uniform crime report statistics along with their own population data and internal research.

 

The cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes and property crimes per 1,000 people.
