Marshal’s Department

The Marshal’s department currently has 6 certified law enforcement officers and 4 reserve officers. The department has been implementing grants totaling approximately $230,000.00 from Safer New Mexico, Dona Ana County Health and Human Services and The Department of Homeland Security. These grants will make it possible for the department to place additional officers on the streets with additional equipment to help deter drinking and driving and to assist with potential border issues. This will allow the department to actively support Operation Stonegarden and assist the Customs and Border Protection in the areas of drug and human smuggling coming out of Mexico also with illegal weapons and money entering Mexico. The grants have assisted the department in purchasing much needed equipment that has not been available, such as video equipment, computers, radars and protective gear. Additionally, these grants will also allow the department to pay for the up-keep of the current fleet. All of these factors, the diligence of the officers and the support of the town government will make Mesilla a safer place for its residents and for the visiting community.


The department will continue to run patrol operations 24/7 to include traffic enforcement, investigations, a dedicated School Resource Officer, and assistance with the Safe Routes to School program.
