Report: Maysville is the second safest city in North Carolina
MAYSVILLE, Jones County - An online consumer reports website named Maysville as the second safest city in North Carolina.
The report released from Consumer Affairs used FBI crime states and Census information from 2014. According to the statistics Maysville had very little crime that year.
Maysville police chief Paul Baugus said he was surprised the town was named in the report. He didn't know it was coming out. He said his department has six officers. The chief said his officers work hard to maintain a positive relationship with the community to help deter crime. He said they do that by checking in regularly at homes and businesses throughout the town.
"I mean, (we're just) doing our everyday job," Baugus said. "We're not looking to get nothing like this. We're just out here trying to help the citizens. That's what we're here for."
