According to the Movoto Real Estate Blog, Castle Rock is the 9th safest place in Colorado. If you ask a Castle Rock resident, they might beg to differ however, the report indicates the total number of places considered was 39 and was based on the Uniform Crime Report from the FBI (2012).

The report data appears to be a few years behind and lists our friends across the road at #4 (Parker, CO.)

Here’s the rankings based on their data, you be the judge we invite you to comment below or on our Facebook page.

1. Town of Erie
2. Town of Firestone
3. Town of Windsor
4. Town of Parker
5. City of Fruita
6. City of Arvada
7. City of Lafayette
8. City of Golden
9. Town of Castle Rock
10. City of Longmont (tie)
10. City of Fort Morgan (tie)

I haven’t personally analyzed the data however, I find it hard to believe that Arvada has a better crime rate than Castle Rock.
