For the seventh year in a row, Centennial was named Colorado’s safest city when it came to crime rates, according to a recent article in the Centennial Citizen. The list includes 400 cities nationwide with populations over 75,000 people and ranks cities on several crime- and other safety-issue-related indicators.
Compared to other U.S. cities, Centennial came in number 16th overall. The safest city in the U.S. was judged to be Fishers, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. Boulder, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, and Denver also made the nationwide top 400 list along with several smaller Colorado cities, suggesting that overall, the state is a relatively safe place to live and work. O’Fallon, Missouri; Mission Viejo, California; Ramapo, New York; and Newton, Massachusetts also made the top-five list.
The list examines six types of Colorado felonies: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. An in-depth analysis of this data has been published in the book City Crime Rankings 2011-2012: Crime in Metropolitan America, which is produced by Seal Press. According to Centennial city leaders, the city is honored to have achieved the title of “Colorado’s safest city” for the seventh year in a row, and they credit the community’s strong commitment to safety for their ongoing success.
