Stonington — A study done by a website that specializes in home and cybersecurity issues has found that Ledyard is the 16th safest municipality in the state.
The two other safest communities in southeastern Connecticut were Old Saybrook, at 21st, and Stonington, at 38th.
Of the 92 ranked municipalities, Norwich was 59, Groton, 66, and New London, 92.
The safest community was Easton and the least safe was Hartford. Ranked second was Newtown, where 26 people, including 20 children, were massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
