TOMS RIVER – Toms River ranked 13th in a report named “The 30 Safest Places To Raise A Child.”
The report was generated by SafeWise, a company that sells security systems. It cobbled together statistics from various towns, such as graduation and crime rates, to create the list.
Toms River’s entry noted after-school and summer camps and the Halloween parade as ways to make the town family-friendly and create a culture of safety and prosperity.
“This reflects favorably on the entire township,” Mayor Thomas Kelaher said at a recent Township Council meeting.
