Colorado Springs, located at the foot of one of America's most famous mountains, Pikes Peak, has a rich history intertwining with the growth of the United States as a nation. It has had its shares of ups and downs in terms of safety and security over the years. Unfortunately, like many cities, crime in Colorado Springs is a concern, with issues ranging from petty crime to more significant incidents. However, the city has made strides in addressing crime and ensuring public safety, with police actively working to reduce crime rates and engage with the community. In recent times, peaceful protests have taken place in the city, mainly advocating for social justice and policy reform.

The local economy thrives on the defense industry, technology, and tourism, with its panoramic vistas and outdoor activities attracting people from all over.

  • The Broadmoor: While this upscale area is relatively safe, always be cautious with personal property in busy public areas.
