Recent Study Claims Portland Is One Of The Safest Places In Oregon

In the past few years, Portland has been trying to fight crime, but in 2022, the city had a record number of murders. A new study found that Camas, Wash. is one of the safest suburbs in the U.S. The company looked at how safe each of the 370 suburbs of the 100 most significant towns in the country is and how much each one costs.

To compare each city, researchers looked at the physical crime rate, the property crime rate, the number of people who died in car accidents, the number of people who died from drug poisoning, and the number of people who drank too much.

The crime figures came from and the FBI’s 2021 Uniform Crime Reporting database. The health figures came from the 2022 county health rankings. When the numbers for each neighbourhood were added up, Camas came in 18th.
