Ocean Pines Tops ‘Maryland’s Safest Cities’ List for 2017

The National Council for Home Safety and Security announces its list of the safest cities in Maryland for 2017. Ocean Pines, Taneytown, Glenarden, Bowie, and Hampstead are the ‘Top 5,’ with Ocean Pines leading the pack.

The council combined data from the most recent FBI Crime Reports, population data, and their own research to create its rankings. The report was formally released on March 6, 2017.

Denise Sawyer, the marketing and public relations director for the Ocean Pines Association said, “Ocean Pines Police Chief Dave Massey and his department work hard to ensure Ocean Pines is a safe community, offering exceptional value and quality of life to property owners and guests.”

According to the report, Ocean Pines’ violent crime rate is 0.49/1,000 people, which is significantly lower than the state average of 5/1,000 people.

“The recent report conducted by the National Council for Home Safety and Security reflects the continuation of our efforts to move our community forward and to provide our membership with a family-friendly environment,” said Sawyer.
