    Is New Mexico State Police a good agency and is it full-service in any county or is it just a Highway Patrol with a State Police name?

  • #2
    All of my interactions with officers from NMSP have been very very positive and I look at them as true brothers. In general I think NMSP is a great agency and don't mistake staties out here for highway patrol. There's a LOT of land out here and they could be the only officer for 100 miles....hope this helps.

      I figured tacticus, that NMSP is more then a highway patrol. I'm guessing in rural counties like Union they and the union sheriff are the only full-timers. What type of equipment is used?

      Cars?
      Guns?
      Uniform allowance?
      Shift?
      Barracks?

      I guess I'm just curious as I might apply.

        NMSP Gets Down!

        Yeah, NM State Police get down where I'm from in NM. I dont live in NM anymore but I'll tell you they have excellent equipment, sharp looking uniforms and in general are just great guys to work with. Check them out and see what you think for yourself though.......They do run city, county, and state calls everyday though. Very good training academy as well, one of the best I would venture to say.............Good Luck.............

            Cars?--Ford Crown Vic
            Guns?--357SIG (I'm an ACP guy but if I weren't I'd be this)
            Uniform allowance?--I think so
            Shift?--Three watches and you will rotate, every 30 days I believe
            Barracks?--12 districts state wide.

            Add to that Tasers, Longguns, less-lethal and I think you'll get the idea. Great SWAT team but just remember additional assets will be coming from across the state and from my dept. to provide backup. All SAR activations fall under the jurisdiction of NMSP but for obvious reasons they work with local civilian groups big time. There's even a dive team.

            Just remember New Mexico is kinda like the Philippines...there are still hamlets around the state that are a little far removed from reality....waiting for the Spaniards they are...HA!

              I'm just completing my application packet to submit for NMSP. Anyone familiar w/their process? I talked to a recruiter and he seemed pretty cool, and said I may only have to make 2-3 trips there.

                  I'm NMSP

                  They have a guranteed duty station thing going on right now. When I went through the academy over 6 years ago, I was at the mercy of the State and where they wanted me. We are short handed everywhere, so where ever you choose, you will probably get.

                    We ARE NOT a Hwy Patrol Ageny. We are a full service agency, which means we answer city, county, and hwy calls.

                    Tacitus pretty much explained what we do.

                      You will go through a polly graph, then a extensive back ground investigation. If you make it past those two, then you move onto the oral board interview. Then you come back for a physc exam, then you come back for the last time for a complete physical.

                              Anybody know how big their classes are? From the last academy class pics looks like around 20. Are they usually that small?
