World renowned as an extraordinary golf and vacation destination, Pinehurst is now officially the “Safest Place to Live in North Carolina” – for two years running!
Movo to has released its list of the safest 10 cities in each state, based on the latest FBI Crime Report. Looking at cities with a population of 10,000 people or more, and using the Crime Report statistics, Pinehurst earned the top spot again this year.
Moore Alive, a website dedicated to lifestyle, news, and events in Moore County, recently wrote:
“Known for its beautiful golf courses and southern charm, Pinehurst is also earning a reputation for keeping its citizens safe. Safety has always been a top priority for this community, and it has certainly paid off. Pinehurst had zero murders in 2013, and it also had the fewest number of violent crimes per person as well as an incredibly low number of property crimes. Together, this led to Movoto Real Estate naming the community the safest place to live in North Carolina.
Pinehurst has received numerous other awards related to safety, as well. The area’s fire department earned the 2013 Life Safety Achievement Award, and a Pinehurst officer was named the 2013 Moore County Law Enforcement Officer of the Year. The traffic safety in Pinehurst has also been applauded; Pinehurst was named an Outstanding NC Traffic Safety Community in 2010.”
