Even though crime rates in Montana are higher than most of the nation on average, I do have some good news for those of us living in Missoula. According to new study by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, Missoula is one of the top 5 safest cities in the entire state.

Just barely, though. Missoula came in at number 5. The study highlights the cities that have the least amount of violent and non-violent crimes in Montana.

Here's the full Top 5:

5. Missoula

4. Great Falls

3. Helena

2. Bozeman

1. Kalispell

Are you surprised by this news? Do you think we should be ranked higher, or maybe lower?
