The City of Centennial has been ranked No. 5 on the list of safest cities in Colorado.
The list, compiled by insurance and lending firm LendEDU, looked at cities with populations higher than 10,000. Cities were ranked based on the rate of violent crime (2.33x weight) and the rate of all other crimes (1x weight). Cities with low crime rates had higher “safety scores” and vice-versa for those with high rates of crime. Crime numbers were adjusted by population to account for differing city sizes.
“Public safety has always been our first priority, so receiving a designation like this is very gratifying for the City,” said Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko. “We’re incredibly grateful for our law enforcement officers and others who help keep us safe.”
This is Centennial’s second top-5 safe city designation in recent months. In November, 24/7 Wall Street named Centennial the No. 2 safest city in the state.
