Here are the 10 Safest and Most Peaceful Places to Live in Utah

Overall, Utah’s crime rate is very low. Based on the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report from 2012 (the most recent report), Utah is ranked 45th in the nation for violent crime. The FBI includes five violent crimes in its data: murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault.

I’ve taken a closer look at the FBI’s report, and compiled a list of the 10 safest cities in Utah. For this list, I only looked at cities with populations of at least 10,000 residents, which included 41 cities all over the state.

Here are the 10 safest Utah towns with at least 10,000 residents (population numbers are from the FBI’s report, which reflect 2012 data).

Do you live in a safe town? Tell me where you live and I’ll respond with your town’s crime rate statistics, when available.
