Residents in Los Alamos had the lowest chance anywhere in the state of being the victim of a crime at 1 in 192. That’s because with just 520 total crimes per 100,000 people, it had the lowest number of crimes.

Of these crimes, 197 were property crimes and 323 were violent crimes. This relatively high number of violent crimes, as compared to property crimes, was the only reason Los Alamos didn’t take the No. 1 spot on Movoto’s list.

Even so, compared to many places in the state with more than 1,000 (or even in the case of Espanola, 2,000) violent crimes per 100,000 people, Los Alamos’ rate of violence was still very low.

Here are the 10 safest places in New Mexico:

1. Village of Corrales
2. CDP of Los Alamos
3. City of Alamogordo
4. City of Lovington
5. City of Raton
6. City of Aztec
7. City of Sunland Park
8. City of Rio Rancho
9. City of Las Vegas
10. City of Deming
