The same website that named Franklin and South Kingstown among the safest towns in America, says New Bedford and Fall River some of the most dangerous.

Neighborhoodscout.com ranked the top 100 most dangerous cities in America.

New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell is refuting the claim that New Bedford came in at 72.

He calls the ranking, “A gimmicky comparison that tells people nothing about the reality of public safety in a community.”
