Double Oak Recognized as a Safe Town
According to a study by Elite Personal Finance, an online source for financial tips and identity theft protection, Double Oak is recognized as a “Safest Place in Texas.” Researchers created a formula using FBI crime statistics, and a community’s population to determine a crime score – the safer the city, the lower the score. Double Oak’s crime score is 0.00. The study also narrowed the results according to population segments, and Double Oak ranked very safe for a population of 3,000 to 10,000 residents. View the full study here www.elitepersonalfinance.com/safest-places-texas. Double Oak congratulates our neighbors who were also recognized in the study.
