The state of Colorado is one of the fastest growing states in the country, and a lot of that has to do with it being a great place to raise a family. But what areas are safer?

The real estate website Movoto has posted the ten cities throughout the state that they believe are the safest, with three cities from northern Colorado making the list.

They used the following criteria when determining their list:

  • The research was done on cities with a population of 10,000 or more
  • Crime data for each municipality was used
  • 39 cities were part of the research, and crime statistics that were included were property crimes, murder, violent crimes, and total crimes

So the question is, do you live in one of the safest cities in the state?
