McKinley County Sheriff's Dept. Mission Statement

The quality of neighborhood life, its safety and welfare comes from the commitment of each of its citizens. The McKinley County Sheriff’s Office takes pride in its role as a citizen of the community, providing and delivering quality law enforcement services.

We, the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office, dedicate our full-time efforts to the duties incumbent upon every community member. As we act, we will be ever mindful that our authority derives from those we serve, the citizens of McKinley County and the State of New Mexico.

We, the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office, accept with honor, our law enforcement mission to serve our communities with the enduring belief that in so doing, we serve ourselves. As professionals, we view our responsibilities as a covenant of public trust, never to be compromised to any citizen due to race, religion, national origin, political affiliation, sex, or any other reason inconsistent with sound constitutional practices.

Our success and effectiveness will be gauged by the reduction of crime and fear in our county and the level of respect the citizens have for our efforts. The following principles shall be our guideline as we strive to accomplish this all important mission.

We will strive to maintain a professional organization that provides public safety, law enforcement and humanitarian services, and in doing so we, the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office, will uphold our obligation to safe guard the constitutional rights of all people.

We will base our decisions and actions on sound ethical and practical reasoning and will accept responsibility for the consequences. We will seek guidance from the citizens in helping establish the most prudent course of action to maintain community order.

As we test new ideas we will remember our obligation to maintain the physical health of the organization through the wise assignment of our resources. We will never tire of our duty and obligations, never run from a difficult task and never lose sight of our own humanity.
