Safest Cities In Colorado

Safest Cities In Colorado


Image titleIf you’re on the house hunt in Colorado, there are probably a lot of boxes on your checklist, and one of the more important ones may be neighborhood safety.

It’s important for home and business owners alike to feel safe when they take the first steps out their front door. 

Last week New York-based analysis company ValuePenguin released the 2016 " Safest Places in Colorado" report and ranked 77 cities in the state from most to least safe.


The report looked at the most recent FBI crime statistics for 77 Colorado cities total. Cities were then assigned a crime score of 41 to 5,266 based on the number of violent and property crimes committed per 100,000 residents.


Dacono, a small city about 30 miles north of Denver with a population of 4,425, was rated as the safest in the entire state, with the third-lowest rate of violent crime and second-lowest rate of property crime.


According to the report, despite Dacono’s small size, the police department offers a variety of programs such as House Watch, Citizen Police Academy and Santa Cops to keep crime low and promote good community relations.  

Out of all the cities in the report, Dacono was followed by Yuma, Eaton, Frederick and Severance, which took the Nos. 2-5 spots, respectively. Check out more highlights below.
