We definitely have crime around here. However, compared to bigger cities like Seattle, Spokane, and Portland, our crime rates are pretty decent. But there's one Tri-Cities area town that is one of THE safest in the state! In a survey done by the National Council for Home Safety and Security West Richland came in #3 safest city in the whole state of Washington! Richland, Pasco, and Kennewick were further down on the list: Pasco and Richland took 23rd and 24th place. To see more stats to see where your city ranks, click here. Meanwhile, I'm moving to West Richland. ;)
