# 22 Chatham Township, New Jersey
"This little town isn't too far from the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. With protected land nearby, it makes sense that Chatham Township has also dedicated a lot of its resources to protecting its own people. The local police department developed "10 Community Policing Districts," which provides people in those areas with programs like the Medicine Drop Box that gives people a place to safely dispose of unwanted medication."
