I just got on here to look for any new listings on house's for sale, I came across you question asking if Williamstown is a safe area? I am responding to this question because I lived in that county for 4 years, I believe it is very safe. I also look at it no matter where you are, could be the safest place in the whole world and all sudden their would be a crime or several crimes all in one day. We do not know what is going to happen tomorrow, we can only hope and wish for a safety and happiness for every next day we live for. Contacting the police would be your best option if you really feel uncomfortable about the crime rate in Williamstown area.
