Laramie residents are among the safest in Wyoming, according to a new report by the National Council for Home Safety and Security.

Their report, titled “The Safest Cities in Wyoming 2017,” ranks cities based on the number of violent and property crimes reported per 1,000 people. Laramie came in second, with 32,375 people, with one instance of violent crime and 16 reported property crimes per 1,000 people, making a total of 43 violent crimes and 526 property crimes total.

“The city of Laramie is one of the biggest tourism draws in the state of Wyoming,” the study says, citing the outdoor recreation available in the nearby Snowy Range and Laramie Range. “It’s also one of the safest around.”

Worland ranked first as the safest city in Wyoming, with one violent crime and 57 property crimes total per year, with a population of 5,335. Jackson came in third, as it only experienced 19 cases of violent crime and 168 cases of property crime total last year, out of 10,668 residents.

Cody and Green River ranked fourth and fifth on the list. Casper is 11th on the list and Cheyenne is the last, coming in at 15. The study did not rank all Wyoming towns, as cities with populations under 5,000 and cities that failed to submit a crime report to the FBI were not included.
