I just did a story the other day about a list that showed the most scary states in the U.S. based upon an assortment of things, and Colorado was ranked the 12th scariest state. So where is the scariest place to live in the 12th scariest state? This should tell us. 

The brokerage company Movoto Real Estate took information from the U.S. Census Bureau and FBI crime data and ranked all towns and cities with at least 10,000 residents from the safest to the least safe in Colorado.

Movoto’s Top Ten Safest Places

  1. Erie
  2. Firestone
  3. Windsor
  4. Parker
  5. Fruita
  6. Arvada
  7. Lafayette
  8. Golden
  9. Castle Rock
  10. Longmont/Fort Morgan

Movoto’s Least Ten Safest Places

  1. Pueblo
  2. Federal Heights
  3. Denver
  4. Colorado Springs
  5. Aurora
  6. Grand Junction
  7. Commerce City
  8. Wheat Ridge
  9. Greeley
  10. Greenwood Village

Windsor was among the safest places, primarily for its incredibly low violent crime rate: just “10 violent crimes per 100,000 for all of 2012,”according to the published data. “Those violent crimes included 10 assaults, and no rapes, robberies or murders, making Windsor the least violent place in our analysis.”

As for the other two big towns in Northern Colorado, Loveland was ranked as the 13th safest place in the state, and Fort Collins claimed the 23rd spot on the list.
