We are one of the safest places to live in Kansas!
Safe Choice Security has placed Colby on its list of 14 safest cities in Kansas. For families and businesses attempting to relocate, sorting through statistical data about crime rates, education, local economy and other factors can be daunting. Safe Choice Security has attempted to ease this process by compiling a detailed and descriptive list of the Safest Cities in Kansas.
Safe Choice Security referenced their own databases with those of the FBI and local police departments, comparing over 300 cities in Kansas in order to bring you their list of the 14 safest cities in Kansas. Below is what they published about Colby.
Colby is the county seat of Thomas
County in Kansas. With a population of just over 5,000, the city is known for
its beautiful natural and touristic attractions, including the Villa High Lake,
Fike Park, and the Colby Aquatic Park. The Colby Police Department organizes
regular patrols, engages in community policing activities, and supports
educational and learning activities for its citizens. In January 2007, the
department seized $3.7 million dollars in drug forfeiture funds, which have
contributed greatly to its technological and training advancements. Officers
are provided specialized training and work in partnership with external
agencies to keep the city safe throughout the year.
Violent Crimes per 1000: 2.2
Property Crimes per 1000: 24.52
Crime Index: 30
Safer than 30% of US cities
