(WTNH) — Fairfield County is home to some of the most affluent communities in the country.

According to a new survey from ValuePenguin, the five safest places in Connecticut are all in Fairfield County.

They determine the list by analyzing FBI statistics. The average crime score for our state is 1,019. These five cities have an average final crime score of 164:

  1. Ridgefield
  2. Wilton
  3. Easton
  4. Weston
  5. Redding

The study also separated the safest cities into three categories; small, midsize and large.

In this breakdown, Greenwich comes in as the safest large town (with over 30,000 people). Ridgefield takes the prize for the safest midsize town (with population between 17,000 and 30,000). And for the small towns, with a population under 17,000, Easton is the safest.
