Rankings Matter! We all strive for excellence—with cities, the metrics range from citizen service delivery to public safety and economic viability. The national rankings Provo has earned become a bragging right because they illustrate a healthy community with a well-run local government. With the July 2 opening of our new Provo City Hall and public safety headquarters, it is the ideal time to highlight the role of government as an economic driver.
A Thriving Center For Government
Replacing our failing public safety facilities became a potentially life-saving decision as one considers 145,000 annual emergency calls now handled from our state-of-the-art dispatch center—with police, fire and emergency services all co-located for efficient coordination. Provo City is ranked as the #1 Safest Large City in Utah and we are dedicated to keeping our citizens safe and sound.
