The City of Corinth has been recognized as the 14th Safest City in Texas by SafeWise, a home security and safety brand committed to increasing safety education, awareness, and preparedness in American communities.

Rankings were determined using the most recent FBI Crime Report for cities over 10,000.  The cities were narrowed down based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft).  Based on these stats Corinth has a violent crime rate of (.091), less than one in 1,000.

Chief Debra Walthall attributes this ranking to the dedication of the men and women of the Corinth Police Department and to the citizens who work in conjunction with the police department in keeping the community safe.

The Corinth Police Department has established a variety of programs and resources that proactively address safety and crime prevention in the 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, or sign up for the Citizen’s Police Academy. 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!
