WILTON, Conn. -- Wilton recently was named the fourth-safest community in Connecticut by Value Penguin, a personal finance research and analysis site. 

Value Penguin sourced all of its data from FBI violent and property crime statistics from 2012. Violent crimes were given a heavier weight (90 percent) versus property crimes (10 percent) to arrive at an overall "crime score." The lower the crime score, the safer the municipality. 

Wilton had a "crime score" of 61, placing behind only Ridgefield, Easton and Darien. 

The safest communities all were in Fairfield County with Ridgefield, Easton, Darien and Redding rounding out the top five. 

The rest of Fairfield County communities were ranked as follows:

  • No. 6: Weston
  • No. 8: New Canaan
  • No. 9: Greenwich
  • No. 24: Westport
  • No. 48: Fairfield
  • No. 54: Danbury
  • No. 71: Stamford
  • No. 77: Norwalk
  • No 87: Bridgeport

The least-safest communities were New Haven and Hartford, with crime scores of 1,798 and 1,622, respectively. 

Value Penguin is a financial research and analysis site that aims to help consumers formulate the best possible financial decision based on cost and risk. It was founded by Jonathan Wu, Ting Pen and Brian Quinn, all of whom have backgrounds in the financial industry.
