Livingston has a population of nearly 30,000, according to U.S. Census data.
The safest city in the Garden State, according to the study, is Bergen County's Mahwah Township. Rounding out the list at No. 50 is Hazlet Township in Monmouth County.
The only Essex County municipality to be included in the list was Nutley Township, which came in at No. 40.
