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 violent crimes, 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.

Protecting the Rights of the Accused

As law enforcement continues to emphasize the need for greater security for the residents of Weymouth, they may entangle other individuals who are completely innocent. In an effort to uncover criminal activity and convict suspects, people may get caught in the shuffle and given harsh penalties that are unmerited.
