Here Are The 10 Safest And Most Peaceful Places To Live In New Mexico

When selecting a place to live, most people view safety as an important factor. Perhaps you’re planning to move, or maybe you’re just intrigued about whether or not your town made the list. We relied on SafeWise and the most recent crime data from the FBI to determine which New Mexican towns are currently the safest.

The FBI combines the following offenses into the category of violent crime: murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. (The FBI data that we used is from 2013, which is the most recent information available.)

Did your town make the list? Do you think it should have? Let us know in the comments.
