How Safe Is The Town You Live In?

There are lots of things to consider when you are moving to a new area. Job opportunities, cost of living, housing availability, school rankings, local amenities, and healthcare.

Crime is something that no town will ever be able to rid itself completely of, but there are towns that are "safer" than others.

When it comes to crime rates and safe towns in Montana, it should come as no surprise that smaller towns are considered safer than their larger counterparts.

I don't know the true reason behind that, but my best guess would be that in a smaller town, you know almost everyone in it, whereas in a bigger town, it's easier to commit a crime when you don't know the person you're hurting.
