El Paso and Socorro named among Texas’ safest cities

October 30, 2013

#16 Socorro

In the heart of El Paso County, just 20 minutes from downtown El Paso, you’ll find the quaint city of Socorro. Situated on the bank of the Rio Grande River, the city’s population has skyrocketed over the last decade, and it’s gained a reputation as one of the fastest growing cities in the southwest. Socorro’s ideal location is one reason why families are moving to the city; its safe streets may be another. According to the FBI’s Crime in the U.S. Report, there were no murders, six robberies and 85 burglaries reported to law enforcement in 2011.


The Socorro Police Department requests your help in locating the listed individuals. These individuals have been issued arrest warrants for different types of crime. Please contact us at (915)858-6986.
