District 7 — Española

Our district is comprised of a very diverse cross section of Northern New Mexico’s population. The services we perform here are equally diverse. Officers in this district answer calls ranging from traffic accidents to homicide investigations. Our officers are very busy but they are rewarded by living in one of the most scenic areas of the state. The way in which the personnel of District Seven serve and protect the citizens is best summed up in our mission statement.”It is the mission of the New Mexico State Police, Espanola District Seven, through partnership with the communities of Northern Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Taos Counties, to effectively and efficiently suppress crime, strive to protect the lives, property, constitutional rights, and vital resources of all within our area of operation. We will aggressively locate, identify, document, and disrupt criminal organizations in an ongoing effort to bring violators before the proper courts. We will enhance the quality of life of our communities by providing innovative problem solving, solutions, and holding offenders accountable by assuring consistent, legal, and moral consequences for illegal behavior.”
