CORNWALL, Pa. (WHTM) – Looking for a safe place to live? Look no farther than Lebanon County.
One of it’s communities made a list as a great location to raise a family.
Cornwall, once known for it’s iron ore mines, is now known for it’s safety.
People stay in Cornwall for years. The borough receptionist has worked there for 19 years, the borough manager for 38 years and the Chief of Police for 42 years.
These small town residents say a big part of the draw making them stay for years is safety.
Alarms System Reviews just released their analyzed FBI data recognizing Cornwall as the sixth safest place to live in Pennsylvania.
“We have very little violent crime,” Police Chief Bruce Harris said. “All in all I would agree with it. [It goes to show because] when homes are put on the market they don’t last real long. It’s just a desirable place to live.”
Borough manager Steve Danz remembers Chief Harris from when he was a kid.
“We used to bring the police car over to the neighborhood and all my buddies and I would get to sit and talk to him, and we thought that was pretty cool,” Danz said.
