Signal Mountain Ranked 10th Safest Small Town in the US

Signal Mountain is the 10th-safest small town in the U.S., according to the real estate blog Movoto.

The list looks at FBI crime data from 2012 for towns with populations between 5,000 and 25,000 people.

Signal Mountain’s placement in the top 10 comes from its low violent and property crime rates. The town had no rapes, murders or robberies reported in 2012 and the 11th-lowest property crime rate the same year, according to Movoto.

Here’s the full top 10:

1. Zionsville, Indiana
2. Hillsborough, California
3. Trophy Club, Texas
4. Erie, Colorado
5. Nolensville, Tennessee
6. Firestone, Colorado
7. Moraga, California
8. Purcellville, Virginia (tie)
9. Los Altos Hills, California (tie)
10. Signal Mountain, Tennessee

Signal Mountain Burglaries


I would like to make you all aware of several home burglaries that have taken place over the last two weeks. The police department is investigating six cases throughout the Town. All of these burglaries have occurred during daylight hours. Four incidents involved entry being made by breaking a window. The other two homes were unlocked. Again, these have not occurred in one particular part of town.
If you have an alarm system, we encourage you to use it routinely.

Please be observant as you are out and about and do not hesitate to report suspicious activity to the police department (886-2123).

These cases are being diligently investigated and any information could be of great assistance.
