What are the safest big cities in Colorado?

First, it's important to settle on a definition for "big" — and the folks at the website ValuePenguin, which recently published a study entitled "2015 Safest Places in Colorado," settled on a fairly modest number: a population of 20,000 or above.

The communities that finished in the top ten are mostly suburbs in the metro area and northern Colorado. Sorry, Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder: Not good enough.

We've also included the methodology for the study, which was based on 2013 FBI crime data.

Count down the photo-illustrated top ten below. And to check out the original post, click here.
