In a recent analysis by home security experts at ADT, Harrow has secured the second-lowest crime rate in the United Kingdom. The study, which delved into crime rates per 1,000 people and additional factors like school quality, general safety, and the availability of parks, aimed to pinpoint the most family-friendly areas across the country.
Dorset claimed the top spot with a notable crime rate of 49 incidents per 1,000 people for the year ending March 2023. Following closely, Harrow, earned the distinction of being the second safest area, registering an annual crime rate of 62 per 1,000 people during the same period.

The top 10 list of UK areas with the lowest crime rates also featured Bexley, Bromley, Barnet, Swindon, Wandsworth, Havering, Redbridge, and Hillingdon.
Harrow’s recognition as the second safest area underscores the community’s focus on maintaining a secure environment for its residents. The study not only commends the borough for its low crime rates but also acknowledges its overall family-friendly atmosphere.
