42nd Safest City in America - 7th in New Jersey
"The people of Chatham Township, New Jersey, have helped make their city one of the safest in America for the second year in a row. In fact, one of the peskiest problems for the residents isn’t criminals, but rather their black bear neighbors. To make sure everyone lives in harmony, the Chatham Township Board of Health educates about proper black bear protocol to keep residents—and bears—safe. Plus, it regularly updates its website with information about local virus outbreaks and preventative health tips, like vaccinations schedules and recommendations to keep people in ship shape".
