When Joseph Magoffin helped write the articles of Incorporation for El Paso, he helped shape the modern city. In this series, we will compare Joseph’s vision for El Paso to what is has become in the last 150 years. Guest speakers from municipal agencies will be invited to speak about their departments and let us know why and when we might need to call upon them to help us keep El Paso thriving.

Join us this month as we learn the history of El Paso’s Police Department. Spoilers: Joseph Magoffin played a part.

This is a series meant to help us all become more aware of and confident in using city services available to us all and to celebrate 150 years of being an incorporated city in Texas. Call in advance to 915-533-5147, ext. 1002, or email magoffin-home@thc.texas.gov to register.
