Guess Who's bored in Cary? The Cops. 


With no reported murders in 2012, Cary is ranked as America's safest city among those with populations of 100,000–499,999, according to FBI statistics.

Last year, the town reported 14.4 crimes per 1,000 people. Naperville, Ill., the setting for Female Forces, a reality show featuring women police officers, came in second.

Cary has 161 male officers and 23 female officers, not including Tiffany Silsbee, who resigned from the force in July after being arrested on DWI charges.

In the same week Cary announced its safest status, town officials sought the public's help in nabbing a suspect in five pizza parlor robberies. And Pure Gold, Cary's famous strip club, switched from topless dancers to all-nude entertainers. Which is not a crime, but it's one way to alleviate the boredom.
