A Website dedicated to researching and rating neighborhoods has placed Ossining 45th on its list of 100 Safest Cities.
The NeighborhoodScout 2013 Safest Cities list from Location, Inc., is based on crime statistics from communities with populations of 25,000 and above and is designed to help homebuyers.
"We know that the success of any crime prevention strategy requires a resourceful, vigilant police force and the full commitment of a city's residents," the president of Location Inc. said in a letter to Ossining village Police Chief Joseph Burton.
"It's nice to be recognized for the work of so many good police officers in Ossining," Burton said.
