Las Cruces residents now have new and more convenient ways to find out about services and programs through two City of Las Cruces podcasts, "Engaging Las Cruces" and "Ask The..." The podcasts can be found on the City's website at

"Engaging Las Cruces" is a bi-weekly audio podcast produced by the Community Engagement Office. Its goal is to bring City of Las Cruces government closer to the audience in a way that is easy to understand. "Engaging Las Cruces" is available on iTunes – also known as Apple Podcast, Google Play Music, Stitcher, the City's website, and the Bopit App.

"Podcasting has become an excellent tool to engage residents because they can actively listen and learn while also doing something else. It fits into their busy lives," said Jamey Rickman, Community Engagement Office Manager.  "You can listen while driving, on your lunch break, working out at the gym or while taking a walk."

Also, a new video podcast "Ask The..." made its debut Sept. 2. The podcast is produced by the City's Communications Office. In the debut of "Ask The..." Las Cruces Police Chief Patrick Gallagher and LCPD SWAT Commander Lt. Jeremy Story provided insight about how the police department would respond to a mass shooting and how the community should react. That podcast made its debut on Sept. 2

The second episode of "Ask The.." featured Las Cruces Public Schools Interim Superintendent Karen Trujillo became available Sept. 9. The next podcast of "Ask The..." will be released Monday, Sept. 16. Dominic Aragon and Communications Director Udell Vigil will discuss the City's new website. "Ask The..." is available on Podbean, iTunes, and the City's website..

New episodes of "Engaging Las Cruces" are available every two weeks and are less than 25 minutes each. The topics vary from public art to keeping your neighborhood safe, and everything in between.
