The City of Danbury continues to be one of the safest cities in Connecticut.

Danbury Mayor, Mark Boughton and Police Chief, Patrick Ridenhour are proud to announce that major crimes during the month of November of 2019 declined 33% compared to the same time last year. Here's what the mayor told,

It's been a great year with an exceedingly strong economy. Our unemployment rate remains the lowest in the state and I believe that accounts for some reductions well as outstanding policing by the men and women of our police department.


November marks the ninth straight month that 2019 crime dropped by double digits compared to the same month in 2018. One of the major reasons for the decline in November was the 55 percent drop in thefts.

In February of 2018, the website 24/ named Danbury the most livable city in Connecticut and one of the most livable cities in the country.

On behalf of the entire Townsquare Media team, we offer our "thanks" to Mayor Mark Boughton and the Danbury Police Department for a job 'well done!'
