The Historical Town of Weymouth
As the second oldest town in the Commonwealth, Weymouth's history dates
back to 1622 and it is also the location of the first town meeting. Rich
with history, this suburb serves as a nice bedroom community especially
for those that need to commute into Boston for work. The current population
is at 54,116 people and the town continues to provide comfortable living
to many well-educated and wealthy individuals and families. As a coastal
city, it is a great place for visitors and locals to take part in waterfront
activities and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Crime rates in Weymouth are lower than about 33% of the rest of the state
of Massachusetts. The chance of an individual becoming the victim of a
crime is 1 in 47 people, making the town noticeably safer than other cities
its size throughout the U.S. When it comes to the violent crime rate,
the town has a rate of 3.4 percent, which is close to the national median
rate of 3.9 percent. Property crimes come in at 17.7 percent compared
to the national median of 29.1 percent.
Overall, it is a fairly safe city compared to the rest of cities in the
nation that are similar in population, but due to the higher amount of
law enforcement is on higher alert. In 2011, the city saw a significant jump in violent crimes from an average
of 188.2 incidents per 100,000 in 2010 to 206.7 incidents the following
year. With these more recent developments, the Weymouth Police Department
has taken more proactive efforts to stop criminal activity throughout
the city. Taking a traditional approach, they are willing to do what it
takes to keep the citizens safe under their watch.

penalties that are unmerited. That is where a knowledgeable Weymouth criminal
lawyer from our firm can step in. My qualified legal team knows and understands
