SafeWise is happy to release our fifth annual Safest Cities report. Here are the 10 Safest Cities in Wyoming for 2019. See if your city made the list.
There’s no wild west in Wyoming today—at least not in these safe cities. Not only did the state beat the national violent crime rate with 2.13 incidents per 1,000 people (compared to 4.49 nationwide), but 90% of the cities on our list did even better.
Property crime in Wyoming is also lower than the national rate of 27.11 crimes per 1,000. The Equality State had only 22.64 incidents per 1,000 in 2017. And 80% of the safest cities came in under that.
