Community Policing in Dona Ana, New Mexico: Analysis from Border Network for Human Rights

Border Network for Human Rights has been working in Doña Ana County, NM to promote and protect civil and human rights for 15 years now. The organization is based on the needs of the community and offers a vision of human rights that has drawn nearly 1,000 member families.

This report offers our analysis of the state of community policing in Doña Ana County, NM and outlines a series of recent local government resolutions and public positions that local elected officials have taken, as well as comments by candidates for Sheriff.

Border Network for Human Rights is proud of the involvement of our membership in these developments and is committed to holding public officials accountable to the public safety needs of the community.
