Less than an hour drive from Manhattan, tucked away in Bergen County, lies the town of Wyckoff.   Here you will find tree lined streets, well-manicured lawns, a booming central business district, great schools, and friendly neighbors.  The 6.7 square-mile township now has another reason to boast and that’s their ranking among the top five safest towns in New Jersey.

The security company Safewise, which conducts surveys on the safest town in the nation, recently released their list and Wyckoff ranked among the top 50, as well as many other Bergen County towns.   Wyckoff continues to rank 19 on the list again this year. The list is determined based on statistics gathered from the latest FBI Crime Reports, reported violent crimes reported in the town (robbery, rape, murder and aggravated assault), and property crimes in the town (larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, arson, and burglary).
