West Richland has been rated the third-safest city in all of Washington, according to a new report from The National Council for Home Safety and Security — a home security industry trade organization.

The organization says it came up with the rankings by researching the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with their own population data and internal research. Cities are ranked based on the number of violent crimes and property crimes reported per 1,000 people. Cities with fewer than 10,000 residents weren’t included. (Sorry, Benton City, Finley, etc.!)

As you can see in the chart below, West Richland scored very well in the organization’s research — especially violent crime, where it had less than one reported incident per 1,000 residents.
