El Paso County Sheriff’s Office: County-wide Crime Down 17%

According to data released by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, crime in El Paso County dropped 17% from 2017 to 2018.

“Under the leadership of Sheriff Richard D. Wiles, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office continues to partner with citizens of El Paso County to make our community a safer place to live, work and play,” EPCSO officials shared via an emailed news release Friday evening.

End-of-year Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) for 2018 reveal a 17% decrease in crime in our County compared to 2017.

Violent crimes include Murder, Sexual Assault, Robbery, and Aggravated Assault.  Property crimes include Burglary, Theft, and Motor Vehicle Theft.

“This significant decrease is a result of the commitment of the men and women of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, and other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies,” EPCSO officials stated. “Business and community organizations such as Crime Stoppers, and Neighborhood Watch, together with local governmental entities throughout the County have furthered advanced the war against crime.”

Additionally, since Sheriff Wiles and his administration took office in January of 2009, UCR reports indicate a 71% decrease in crime.

EPCSO officials added, “The importance of citizen involvement in reporting and being proactive in countless ways, and on a daily basis, cannot be overstated in terms of the importance of partnership between law enforcement and the citizens it serves.”
