Here’s what SafeWise had to say about our town:
Roswell is the second largest city on our list, but only one murder and three arsons reported in 2012, which is impressive for a town with a population of over 92,000 people.
Roswell offers a wide range of both educational and recreational activities for kids and adults. The Roswell Library hosts an annual Roswell Reads program that encourages book clubs to focus on a certain book throughout the year and also hosts sessions such as Creative Writing for Children. In terms of schooling, Roswell has several elementary schools that earned the highest honor on school ranking sites as well as many other fine schools for your child’s progression through his or her education, all of which make Roswell a great place for education-focused parents and their children.
