Welcome to the Vinton Police Department’s website. We hope that you find this site interesting and informative. The Village of Vinton is located in far West Texas near the New Mexico border along the Rio Grande River, just off Interstate Highway 10. Nestled between El Paso and the Texas, New Mexico State line, Vinton was incorporated in 1961 and operates as a Type-A General Law Municipality.
The Village of Vinton is home to more than 2000 residents.
Since it’s incorporation, the Village has relied upon the El Paso County Sheriff’s office for its law enforcement needs, however, in 2009, the Mayor and City Council recognized the need for a more localized representation with their law enforcement due to it’s rapid growth and moved to establish its own Police Department.
As you navigate through the site, we urge you to take advantage of the services it has to offer and as this page evolves, additional services and information will be added.
