September 12, 2014 - - First Selectman Timothy M. Herbst and Police Chief Thomas Kiely on Friday offered comment on a recent ranking by the real estate website www.movoto.com, ranking Trumbull as the fourth safest community in Connecticut. The real estate website indicated that “Trumbull ranked well in [their] analysis, primarily for its incredibly low” number of violent crimes. Both the First Selectman and the Chief of Police indicated that the hard work of the men and women of the Trumbull Police Department is proof positive that we live in a safe community.
“These statistics do not happen by accident,” stated Chief Kiely. “This positive record as one of the safest places to live in Connecticut is because of our commitment to having high visibility and being actively engaged in the community. By being thorough with our investigations and showing due diligence, the bad guys know we are serious about public safety in the Town of Trumbull.”
“These results are a testament to our Town and the hard work of the men and women of the Trumbull Police Department,” stated First Selectman Herbst. “As Trumbullites, we should be very proud of the top ten accolades we have earned over the last several years. We have been ranked the 7th best Town in the nation to raise a family according to Family Circle Magazine, the number 1 booming community in Connecticut by Coldwell Banker and now the 4th safest community in all of Connecticut. These results are because of our strong commitment to the three pillars - - strong finances, strong schools and a strong quality of life. Our quality of life is made strong by our commitment to public safety and I am proud that Trumbull has earned this recognition.”
