City of Roxboro Recognized as one of North Carolina's 2017 Top 100 Safest Cities 

Roxboro being named as one of North Carolina's Safest Cities in 2017 is a testament to the hard work of our police department and the community relations to implement proven strategies that reduce crime.  SafeWise, an independent entity, reviews UCR crime rate data reported by law enforcement agencies.  As noted in our 2017 Annual Report, crime rate data for the City of Roxboro steadily decreased since 2015, even though there was a slight rise between 2016 and 2017.  This is the first time the City of Roxboro has been selected by SafeWise as one of North Carolina's Safest Cities.  To learn more about the report and see where Roxboro ranked, visit:
