i had no idea that Steamboat rank so high nationally in regards to crime rate. I wonder why this isn't more of a concern for the community? http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/co/steamboat-springs/crime/

i guess we too busy worrying if the BTUSA initiative is selling enough tee shirts

Housepoor, Well when crime rates are per 1,000 residents and the city often grows by 50% due to visitors then we have far more people in the city than we are given credit for. So since tourists can commit crimes or be crime victims just like residents then we appear to have a higher crime rate than is actually experienced.

In particular, the chance of being a crime victim is overstated because all crimes against tourists are counted as being against residents when determining how many crimes per 1,000 residents.

I think you'll find a direct proportion between crime rate and number of cops per capita.

There's no more crime, there's just more busts.

good point about the tourists but even if we half the results our rates are still pretty high and the tourists are here only 1/3 of the time
