I can't tell you the statistics, but Colorado Springs felt like the safest place I have lived in my life. I hope to move back within a few years... I remember when the concept of local crime would come up in conversations, and people used to laugh about the idea.

I can tell you that there was a prevalent homeless prevalence when I lived there from 06-07 and I can't imagine that it has gone down, but I never had any problems with any homeless when I was living downtown.

If you like being outdoors, and you don't mind a weird mix of ultra conservative and extremely liberal residents, I would highly recommend The Springs.

Not so much crime out here in Colorado Springs
In fact I bet if it wasn't for Denver
Colorado would have the lowest crime rate in the nation !

I have lived in the 80922 zip for two years now with no issues. The kids that roam the streets all seem well mannered and don't act like thugs. I feel safe here and am very happy with the quality of all my neighbors.

this could be the most accurate 4 sentence description of Colorado Springs ever written. especially that last part about the weird mix of ultra conservative and radical liberal. and also, EVERYBODY smokes weed. but they all do it very privately; sales are pretty out-in-the-open but consumption totally isn't. I used to live in Aurora IL (bout 200,000 people) and I can tell you that people THERE, where you get 6 months probation just for possession at minimum, people were more open about it than they are here. And, basically, I would argue that there is no real crime here. I don't know where you're from, but if you've EVER lived in a rust-belt or northeast urban center, the WORST neighborhoods here would qualify as pretty damn nice in most of those cities. ****... I live in the 80910 and people who have lived here forever say this is "the hood" and I laugh in their face. One lady who lives in a town north of here called Monument (tiny little white-washed Christian/military town) even told me she "refused to stop for gas" in my neighborhood. LOL. I would walk around at 3AM, even through the alleys, decked out in gold jewelry, and I would still be shocked if anyone messed with me. And I'm like 5'8" 160lbs soaking wet. Here, you only get shot at, robbed, scraped, etc. if you're doing the shooting/robbing/fighting etc. But really that's how it is everywhere. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Ha, I guess it depends on your circles - I don't know anyone who smokes weed. Although I'm sure there are plenty.

That MIGHT be exactly what I'm talking about though! Or maybe not hah. I'll tell you, I was COMPLETELY convinced of the same thing until slowly but surely I started finding out on the sly that every single one of my co-workers was burnin in their off time. And each one shocked me just as much as the last... my brain was going "WHAT!? XXXXXXX smokes weed?!" And it just kept happening over time, over and over and over again lol
