Sinaloa Crow has a large geographic range, and its population is believed to be stable. Its global conservation status is assessed as of Least Concern (BirdLife International 2013), and populations in Mexico are not threatened.

The relative abundance of Sinaloa Crow is assessed as fairly common to common (Howell and Webb 1995).

Effects of human activity on populations

No threats to Sinaloa Crow are identified by BirdLife International (2013). This species occurs near humans in towns and villages, and may benefit from human activities, such as creating new open habitats, suitable for the crow, through conversion of landscapes to agriculture (see Historical Changes), and by providing new sources of food in garbage dumps.
