WAYNE, N.J. – Wayne was just named one of the top 30 safest cities in the United States to raise a family.

The designation comes from SafeWise – a home security company committed to increasing safety education, awareness and preparedness in American communities.

The township came in at number 11 on the list.

Here is how the list describes Wayne:

“Despite being dotted with lakes and tidy suburban neighborhoods, Wayne Township is just twenty miles from the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan. The city has nearly 2,000 acres of parkland, which includes swimming facilities, community gardens, and dozens of playgrounds. Wayne Township is also home to a world-famous ice rink where championship skaters and coaches run youth skating programs.”

To come up with the rankings, SafeWise reviewed reported sex offender concentration, graduation rates, school quality and FBI violent crime data, and considered parks and recreational opportunities and services for kids and families.
