I recently considered a travel assignment to Roswell, NM.... then decided to google the crime rate stats and OMG, it was insane! So I turned it down. I was contacted again by a different agency a couple days ago about an assignment in Las Vegas, NM (which I didn't even know existed!). So this time I knew to research the area before putting in for the job, and when I did, it was rate the top murder capital of NM. Are you freaking kidding me??!
I'm a young female who would be traveling alone to these assignments so I obviously want to feel safe.
Has anyone been to either of these towns? Is all of NM this way?
