We are very proud and maybe we should feel a little safer! Half of the safest places to live in Colorado are right here in Weld County. SafeWise released its top 20 safest cities in Colorado for 2015. Here are the Weld County towns that made the list:

  • 1 -  Dacono
  • 2 -  Eaton
  • 3 - Fort Lupton
  • 6 -  Erie
  • 8 -  Johnstown
  • 11 - Firestone
  • 12 - Milliken
  • 13 - Windsor
  • 15 - Berthoud
  • 16 - Frederick

How SafeWise chose the safest cities:

We created our safest cities list by analyzing the most recent FBI Crime Report data of cities with 3,000 or more residents in 2013. Then, we examined the reported number of violent crimes (murder, robbery, forcible rape, and aggravated assault) as well as property crimes (burglary, arson, motor vehicle theft, and larceny-theft) in each city. Finally, we calculated how often these crimes were reported per 1,000 people.
