Belgrade was ranked as one of the 10 safest cities in Montana in a new report from SafeWise. SafeWise reviewed the 2016 FBI crime statistics and population data. The evaluation is based on the number of reported violent crimes (assault, murder, rape and robbery) and the number of property crimes reported (burglary, arson, larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft) per 1,000 people. Belgrade came in at #10 on the list. The safest city according to the report was Dillon, MT.
