Carlisle Named One of the Safest College Towns!
Safewise looks at the most recent FBI crime statistics on property and violent crimes to rate communities. Towns on the list have a property crime rate over 2.5 times lower than the national average and a violent crime rate over four times lower than the national average.
To be in the running, cities needed to exceed a population of 15,000 residents and be home to an accredited college that offered four-year degrees. Safewise excluded for-profit institutions, technical and vocational schools, schools that offer only two-year degrees, and those with fewer than 2,000 students enrolled annually.
