Pretty safe, apparently (emphasis mine.)
Lexington has been a very safe community for a long time, but how does it stack up to the safety of other communities in the country?
The answer? Pretty high. According to 2016 data published by NeighborhoodScout.com, Lexington was ranked as the 16th-safest city/town in the United States.
It’s almost enough to make you wonder why we as a town would choose to kick the proverbial hornets’ nest by trying to pass a sweeping firearm confiscation measure that would make criminals of many of our law-abiding friends and neighbors.
