Part of Something Greater

Are You Ready To Make A Difference?

Everybody needs a job, but most of us are aching for more — a career that can help people and make the world a better place, while also providing the structure and tools to succeed and grow. You might think college is the only route to professional success. The truth is, there are many paths you can take. Some of those routes may even end up being something you never considered or immediately ruled out because of misconceptions and false assumptions about the demands and responsibilities of the job: like a career in law enforcement or corrections.

Every day, people are improving their lives and the lives of those around them simply by doing their job.

As a law enforcement officer, you can be a positive force for change in your communities. Ensuring the safety and security of those around you
not only enhances the public’s sense of wellbeing, but it also creates a trickle-down effect on every aspect of society.

Being a police officer is both rewarding and gratifying. That’s because it’s not just a paycheck, it’s a career. You don’t punch in and do your shift. You protect and serve. Your actions affect your community in so many positive ways.

You will be surprised by just how much you can do to improve the lives of those around you. Your good works will help the needy, protect the vulnerable, and make your friends and family proud.

A career with the New Mexico State Police is tough and challenging. It will tax you emotionally, physically, and mentally.

You will work hard. You will think harder. You will give more than you ever thought you had to offer. You will become part of something greater by answering a calling to the service of others – friends, family, and fellow New Mexicans.

Are you prepared?
