You’ll want to keep reading to learn which cities distinguish themselves as the cream of the safety crop.

As far as the Centennial State’s overall crime rate goes, you’re much less likely to become the victim of a violent or property crime here compared to the national average. Between 2013 and 2014, violent crime increased only slightly while property crimes declined by nearly 5%.

All in all, Colorado represents one of the most secure states to settle down, and CreditDonkey has all the details on which cities have the lowest occurrence of crime. If you’re a Colorado resident or you will be in the near future, the following is a must-read for your peace of mind.

Study Methodology

We analyzed the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report for 2014 to determine our rankings. We considered both violent and property crime report information for Colorado communities with a population of at least 1,000.

Violent crime is defined as:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault

Property crime is defined as:

  • Burglary
  • Larceny
  • Motor vehicle theft
  • Arson

To create a CreditDonkey safety score for each city, we reviewed the number of violent and property crimes per 1,000 inhabitants and the number of robberies and burglaries per 1,000 inhabitants. We paid particular attention to robbery and burglary rates since these two crimes tend to occur more frequently.

The 50 cities listed below are the ones that had the best safety scores overall. We’ve ranked them accordingly, starting with the Colorado city where crime is least likely to occur.

Safest Cities 2016: Rankings

1. Palmer Lake

  • Violent crime per 1,000: 0.0
  • Robbery per 1,000: 0.0
  • Property crime per 1,000: 0.0
  • Burglary per 1,000: 0.0
  • CreditDonkey safety score: 0.0

This small but growing community on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, Palmer Lake ranks as Colorado’s safest city. The local police department works actively with schools, residents and other government departments to maintain a superior safety record.

  • CreditDonkey safety score: 0.0

Like Palmer Lake, Georgetown managed to end 2014 with zero crimes reported. That bragging right adds to the attractiveness of an historic town known as a lively tourist spot in the Rockies. The presence of out-of-towners boosts the local economy while luckily not having the same effect on the city’s crime rate.

  • Robbery per 1,000: 0.0
  • Property crime per 1,000: 0.2
