Best Home Security Companies in Massachusetts
Massachusetts is a state of firsts—first railroad, first library, first state constitution, the first college (Harvard University), and the first computer. The state also boasts many other achievements such as being the home of Alexander Graham Bell (invented the telephone), James Naismith (invented basketball), the first public school system, and the first subway in the U.S. Besides their many claims to fame, Massachusetts is known for their rich history of early pilgrim settlements, Salem witch trials, and the Boston Tea Party.
Compared to the national average, Massachusetts has a lower rate of overall crime. However, their individual rates of violent, auto, and hate crimes are the same or above the national average. For example, hate crimes in Massachusetts are double the national average, with higher rates of race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and disability related crimes. Their crimes per square mile are slightly below the national average and so is their number of law enforcement employees per capita.
