After pairing data from the FBI’s 2011 Crime in the U.S. Report with a thorough investigation, the website safewise.com created a comprehensive list of the top 50 safest cities in New York, with 15,000 residents or more as of 2011. The Floral Park Police Department is very pleased to report that the Village of Floral Park topped the list and can proclaim itself as THE SAFEST CITY IN NEW YORK.
"Safe neighborhoods and strong community programming are just two reasons you’ll want to call Floral Park home. Located on Long Island, Floral Park is honored as the safest city on our list. In fact, no murders, rapes or arsons were reported to law enforcement in 2011. One reason residents of this charming 1.4 square mile village enjoy safe streets is likely due to Floral Park’s commitment to educating and empowering young people through robust community services.
During the summer season, you’ll find families cooling off at the Floral Park recreation pool complex or heading to the library for movie night. This all American small town also offers a number of innovative programs aimed at helping protect kids, including the I-Safe program that teaches kids how to responsibly and productively use information and communications technology.
Floral Park’s Setting Adolescent Values through Education and Deterrence (SAVED) program helps steer children away from destructive behavior. Mom and dad will find that getting involved in their new hometown is easy, thanks to a number of community organizations, like the Floral Park Art League, Beautification Committee and Floral Park Council of Cultural Affairs. Rest assured, if your family is fortunate enough to make the move to Floral Park, they won’t be disappointed."
