When most people hear Williamsburg, they think of Colonial Williamsburg; and while this, of course, is a huge part of the city’s culture, this independent city is so much more. For example, modern Williamsburg is a total college town, home to a large number of William & Mary students and staff. It is also home to about four million tourists throughout the year. And, as we discovered in our study, it is also one of the very safest places in the state, especially when it comes to a lack of violent crime.

Out of 14,603 residents, Williamsburg only saw a total of 20 violent crimes in 2012. That means residents had just a 1 in 730 chance of being the victim of a violent crime. The rest of the 259 crimes in Williamsburg were non-violent property crimes, 86 percent of which were larceny/theft.
