The results are in for 2018, and residents in East Aurora and Eden, NY should be proud.  Their towns just made a list of the Safest Cities In America.

The list was compiled by the website and was a product of the 2016 FBI crime report statistics and population data.  In order to rank the cities, they figured the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) in each city. In the event of a tie, they also factored in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft).

Eden was the 5th safest town in New York and 23rd in the country according to this list.  East Aurora came in at 89th nationally.

According to WKBW, The Eden Town Board will recognize the Eden Police Department for their dedication to protecting the community at 7:00 p.m. during the regular town board meeting at Eden Town Hall on May 9.
