Stow Makes List of Ohio's 50 Safest Cities

The city of Stow has ranked 33 on the list of the 50 safest cities in Ohio this week.

"Part of the Greater Akron Metropolitan Area, Stow is a golfer’s dream come true," reads the SafeWise.com blog.

"It is home to the Roses Run Country Club, which overlooks parts of the Cuyahoga River, and is consistently ranked as one of the most challenging golf course in America," the blog continues.

To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2011, population, and other ranking factors, like unique safety initiatives and security programs implemented within the past few years, according to the blog.

From the hundreds of cities in Ohio, researchers narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to how the city met the criteria.

“When neighbors know each other, they look out for each other,” SafeWise security analyst John Roskelley said. “Ohio's safest cities are brimming with civically minded residents who clearly take pride in where they live."
