You’ve come to the right place! Our organization has a proud history of serving the citizens of New Mexico and as we move into the new millennium, we are searching for dedicated men and women who can help us write the next chapter in that history. Being a New Mexico State Police officer is a tough job, but it’s also one that’s filled with reward.
