SALT LAKE CITY – When many think of Utah, crime may not be the first thing that comes to mind.

In fact, according to the FBI’s uniform crime report, Utah is one of the safest states in the U.S.

But that doesn’t mean our state is crime-free.

The real estate blog, Movoto, has just published its rankings of the 10 most dangerous places in Utah.

South Salt Lake comes in at No. 1 with Salt Lake City close behind.

The blog stated it looked into Utah’s cities with more than 10,000 residents.

Then it checked the FBI uniform crime report to tally various offenses including murder, violent crime, property crime and total crime.

1. City of South Salt Lake
