We Are Family

The Average Person Spends About 13 Years

Of Their Life At Work.

With so many days spent with your fellow employees, it’s important to choose an environment that’s positive and supportive. Finding a workplace that allows you to grow and thrive is not always easy, but it’s not impossible. At NMSP, we don’t see each other as coworkers, we treat each other like family.
These days, workplace culture is as essential as salary, benefits, and schedule. That’s because more and more employees are beginning to see that it’s not just about how you spend your days on the job, it’s who you spend that time with. At NMSP, we depend and lean on each other. We aren’t just a “group of people who work together,” we are a family who looks out for each other, both on duty and off.
When you commit to a career with New Mexico State Police, you become a part of a brother/sisterhood. You enter into a compact with your fellow officers: an understanding that everyone rises up together, and each individual is not operating alone, but part of a larger entity. We are a tight-knit organization that appreciates the diversity and unique skills of every officer, even as we work as one united team.
When you join NMSP, you don’t just get a badge and a uniform, you become part of a fellowship. You gain not just coworkers or friends, you become a part of something bigger: you become part of the NMSP family.

You Are What You Eat

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. Instead of restrictive diets, the trick is to focus less on deprivation and more on making better choices. Why does diet matter? Because proper nutrition will give you more energy, boost your mood, and help you stay physically fit – all important factors for succeeding as a law enforcement officer.
