The third week in May is National Police Week. We owe so much to the fine men and women who work to keep our cities secure. Of the top ten safest cities in Texas half of them are right here in Collin County. Allen is ranked number one, Frisco number three, McKinney number six, Plano number seven, and Richardson number nine. Salute! It is a real estate agent's dream - bragging rights for sure.
National Police Week started in 1962. It is a way to honor those who protect us and to remember those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. There are several ways to show appreciation to our forces. Consider gift cards to Sonic or Starbucks. Handmade cards or posters would be nice as well.
Collin County is an exceptional place to live. Safety is an integral part of the whole LivingCollinCounty experience. The complete list of the safest cities by ranking is put out every year by CQ Press and can be found here.
