This is My Office
How would you like to be able to walk right out of the house and right into your office? As a New Mexico State Police Officer, the community you live and work in is your office, so your work day begins the minute you walk out the door. With a squad car that is set up to be a mobile office, you can start your day right away, logging in and getting started the moment you get in. New Mexico State Police covers 100% of your vehicle expenses, which is a substantial benefit considering the annual cost of car ownership in the US is $8,000.
New Mexico State Police is divided into 12 different districts, and each officer is assigned a home district. Your assigned community is counting on you to help keep them safe and help make the community a better place. Mobility throughout your career is a part of joining the New Mexico State Police.
