LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico has a reputation for high crime, but a new survey has found the state is actually home to one of the safest cities in the country — Las Cruces.
Wallet Hub compared more than 182 cities, looking at three safety factors: home and community safety, financial safety, and natural-disaster risk.
Those statistics put Las Cruces at no. 32 on the list. Albuquerque came in at 112.
