Cherry Hills Village has been named the safest city in Colorado by HomeSnack based on FBI crime data.
The FBI’s Uniform Crime Report was analyzed, which summarizes the number of property crimes and violent crimes in each city per year. We used two criteria: violent crimes per capita (murders, assaults, rapes, armed robberies) and property crimes per capita (thefts, burglaries, motor vehicle thefts)
For example, there were a total of 27 crimes committed in Cherry Hills Village which had a reported population of 6,685. That means the number of crimes per capita is 0.004 which translates into a 1 in 247 chance of being the victim of a crime. Only cities that have populations of more than 5,000 were used in the analysis.
The safest city, based on our criteria, is Cherry Hills Village. The most dangerous city in Colorado? Glendale, where residents had a 1 in 6 chance of being the victim of a crime.
CHV ranks as the safest in terms of property crime per capita — a small, tiny 1 in over 268 chance. Those odds are so low you’ll have a better chance of having your taxes audited twice before you get robbed, according to HomeSnack.
