[ARCHIVED] “LCPD Cares” Mural Set in Stone

LCPD Cares

The Las Cruces Police Department’s “LCPD Cares” campaign is set in stone – quite literally – at the East Mesa Public Safety Complex.

On Wednesday, June 9, individuals from various organizations helped LCPD set more than seven tons of colored rock into a hillside mural depicting the department’s primary philosophy as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic: “LCPD Cares.”

  • LCPD Cares about the community for which it serves.
  • LCPD Cares about providing quality services.
  • LCPD Cares about the safety and wellbeing of all residents and visitors to our community.
  • LCPD Cares about our quality of life.
  • LCPD Cares.

The Las Cruces Police Department adopted the “LCPD Cares” philosophy in Spring 2021 as a way to express that employees of the department – most of whom grew up and reside in Las Cruces – have a vested interest in caring for their own community.

Assisting Las Cruces police in creating the LCPD Cares mural were creative artist Kathy Morrow, the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association from New Mexico State University, Boy Scout Troop 68 and the Juvenile Probation, Parole and Drug Court. The Las Cruces Fire Department also assisted with the project along with officers from LCPD’s Community Outreach Unit and Codes Enforcement.

Toro Rock Products provided most of the rock used to create the mural. LCPD Community Outreach officer Alejandro Rodriguez spearheaded the creation of the mural.

The LCPD Cares mural can be seen on the south-facing hillside along Sonoma Ranch Boulevard at the East Mesa Public Safety Complex, 550 N. Sonoma Ranch Blvd.
