[ARCHIVED] LCPD to Reduce Station Hours Amid Public Health Emergency

Residents and visitors can be assured the Las Cruces Police Department will have no reduction of officers on patrol – and all state and local laws will continue to be enforced – during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Out of an abundance of caution, and in keeping with state and federal recommendations on limiting personal contacts amid the public health emergency, the Las Cruces Police Department is implementing temporary procedures that will keep law enforcement services fully operational while reducing the station’s hours of operation.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, LCPD will temporarily reduce working hours for non-essential civilian employees. The reduction in hours will limit operations at the downtown police station, at 217 E. Picacho Ave., and will temporarily close the lobby of the East Mesa Public Safety Complex. The temporary reduction means the timely delivery of incident reports will be delayed.

LCPD’s Records Office will limit pickup of incident and crash reports to Mondays only, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Motor vehicle crash reports are still available online at LCPD’s Station Office at the downtown police station will be closed to visitors. Residents with questions or concerns, or who wish to report minor incidents, can call Central Dispatch, at (575) 526-0795, or the station office at (575) 528-4127. Telephone calls to LCPD’s Station Office can be made from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Residents who need to file an incident report should do the following:

  • Emergency: call 911.
  • Non-emergency: call (575) 526-0795.
  • Some minor incidents can be reported online by visiting and clicking the “File a Police Report Online” tab. Reports that can be filed online include incidents of graffiti, vandalism, lost property, theft of property or theft from a motor vehicle.

News releases from the Las Cruces police will be posted to the department’s social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Residents are encouraged to ‘follow’ the Las Cruces Police Department on one or more of those accounts.

The Las Cruces Police Department encourages the public to heed recommendations set forth by state and federal officials on social distancing to help reduce the transmissions of illness.
