Survey: Weiser Is Safest City in Idaho


The safest city in Idaho?  Weiser.

Real estate group Movoto says it used FBI crime statistics to rank cities based on violent and property crimes and the Ontario Argus Observer reports that Weiser statistically had the fewest instances of violent crime—two assaults—in 2012.

The Argus Observer says Weiser Mayor Diana Thomas was "delighted" and Weiser Police Chief Greg Moon pointed to the teamwork of his department.

"We also have a relationship with the community that is symbiotic," Moon told the Argus Observer. "Everybody gets credit for Weiser being the way it is."
