Concord was ranked No. 30 on a recent list of the 50 safest communities in Massachusetts.

The Safewise.com list, released last week, highlighted Concord's low crime rate and commitment to cultural activities. Safewise is a home security review resource.

Sudbury earned the top spot on the list.

"One reason the 18,000 residents of Concord enjoy safe streets is thanks to the innovative programs spearheaded by the Concord Police Department, including an Elder Affairs Officer, and a basic self defense course, Rape Aggression Defense," the report found. "The Concord of today embraces its colorful heritage and continues to place great value on the arts."

Safewise.com reported the following statistics for Concord:
  • Violent crimes per 1,000 residents: .72
  • Property crimes per 1,000 residents: 9.45
