East Wenatchee ranked as one of the safest cities in Washington


Home security company Safewise has named East Wenatchee one of the 20 safest cities in Washington.

East Wenatchee ranked as the 18th-safest city in the state for 2020, down one from its 17th-place finish in 2019.

The company uses FBI crime statistics and Census data and bases its rankings on both violent and property crimes.

Wenatchee was the 40th safest city in the state on the list.

Snoqualmie earned the safest city in the state designation for the second-straight year, followed by West Richland, Camas and Mercer Island.

The company determined Broadview Heights, Ohio, is the safest city in the nation.
