Top ten most dangerous cities in Utah

UTAH (ABC4) – While Utah is regarded as one of the safest states to live in, not every city fares the same.

In a new study by House Grail, dangerous cities were calculated based on FBI data on violent crimes and homicides per 100,000 residents.

“Utah saw its violent crime rates drop considerably between 2016 and 2019 and despite a drop in property crime rates in 2019, the Beehive State’s violent crime rates were equivalent to 236 incidents per 100,000 population,” the study says.

Here are Utah’s top ten most dangerous cities:
