Upper Southampton is one of the safest municipalities in Pennsylvania, according to a study done by a private home-security company.
The SafeWise Report ranked Upper Southampton the 40th-safest municipality in Pennsylvania, and had this to say about the township:
40. Upper Southampton Township
Abundant community activities, like the annual Turkey Bowl Foam Ball Tennis Charity Tournament and year-round performances by the ballet and local choirs, keep Upper Southampton residents entertained and busy. But they’re not too busy to make the safety of their community a priority. In the most recent FBI Crime Report, this township was free of reported rapes, arsons and murders. Add to that an environmental sensibility and proactive police department, and it’s easy to see why Upper Southampton is home to over 15,000 safe, secure and happy citizens.
Cecil Township in Washington County was ranked the safest in the Keystone State.
