Here are the 10 Safest Cities in Missouri With More Than 10,000 People

We used Movato’s crime statistics to help determine the safest cities in our state. Their methodology involved comparing violent and property crimes per capita, with violent crimes having a stronger influence on score. All cities listed have a population of 10,000 or larger; as you’d expect, smaller towns are often safer. Here are the results.

Some of us are country and some of us are city.  For the city folks, this might be a good thing to consider when relocating to or visiting an area. As you can see, and of course it’s not a huge surprise, suburbs are great places to live if you want to be closer to a bigger city but want to feel a little safer sending your kids to school or walking down the street.  Coming up soon: The safest places to live UNDER 10,000 people.  Stay tuned! Oh, and comment on our choices below!
