Springfield is safer than Quahog.
Peter Griffin has created a comic for the Quahog newspaper that angers local women. The funny lands Peter in hot water and leaves the Griffin family stranded outside Springfield.

Springfield Township is the 75th safest small town in the United States.
According to a report released by the website SafeWise, Springfield Township, Ohio, is the 75th safest small town to live in. The list ranked small towns based on their crime rates and data from the FBI. It excluded cities with more than 15 thousand people and those with fewer than 5000 people. Because Springfield Township has low crime rates, it is listed as the 75th safest small town in America.
The study examined FBI data from 2019 to determine how safe Springfield Township is compared to other small towns. The town’s median household income ranged from $36,000 to $158,000, and the percentage of people below the poverty line was between 4% and 22%. The number of people with a high school education varied from 75% to 91%.
The rankings are based on the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report and include reported property and violent crimes per thousand residents. They also take into account the number of police employees per 1,000 people. The smaller the Police Adequacy number, the safer the town.
The number of violent crimes reported in Springfield Township was less than 4% of the national average. There were also fewer burglaries and no motor vehicle thefts in Springfield Township, making it the 75th safest small town in America. While Springfield Township is still one of the safer places in America, crime rates are expected to increase in the next decade.
