The City of Corinth has been recognized as the 15th Safest City in Texas by the National Council for Home Safety and Security.  The Council is a trade association comprised of home security professionals across the United States.  The council advocates for safe communities and home safety with a strong focus on community involvement.  Rankings were determined using the most recent FBI Crime Report, which shows a violent crime rate of 1.69 per 1,000.  


“Communication and community involvement is the key to providing for a safer city. The partnerships we have developed among our business community and our citizenry assists our officers daily in resolving or preventing crime,” stated Chief Debra Walthall. “We encourage citizens to call us with the slogan ‘See something, say something’ when they observe something suspicious. Our officers do an amazing job and are shown appreciation every day from our community.”


The Corinth Police Department has established a variety of programs and resources that proactively address safety and crime prevention in our community. Citizens can sign up for the Vacation Watch program, participate in the Ride Along program, submit anonymous tips online, browse crime prevention tips on the website, sign up for the Citizen’s Police Academy, and interact with officers on the departments facebook and twitter accounts. 


Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) also play an important role in the level of safety by serving as extra eyes and ears on the streets. These efforts, alongside the partnership with residents and businesses, contribute to making Corinth a safer place to live, work and play.
