Mission Statement

We, the members of the Hobbs Police Department, are committed to being responsive to our community in the delivery of quality service. Recognizing our responsibility to maintain order, while affording dignity and respect to every individual, our objective is to improve the quality of life through a community partnership which promotes safe, secure neighborhoods. The values of the Hobbs Police Department revolve around people, leadership, service and performance.


The Hobbs Police Department is proud to be an accredited law enforcement agency through the New Mexico Municipal Law Enforcement Professional Standards Council. Hobbs P.D. was only the third agency in the state to achieve this accomplishment in 2005. Prior to this, Hobbs P.D. was internationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies since 1996.


Accreditation is an ongoing process whereby agencies are evaluated by an independant and authoratative body to ensure compliance with established criteria and standards. The goal of accreditation is to:

  • Strengthen crime prevention and control capabilities
  • Formalize essential management and administrative procedures
  • Establish fair and non-discriminatory personnel practices
  • Improve service delivery
  • Solidify inter-agency cooperation and coordination
  • Boost citizen and staff confidence in the agency



The Hobbs Police Department is a two-story facility which houses all divisions of the Police Department, including:

  • a fifty-bed municipal jail
  • both an indoor and outdoor firing range/training area
  • a large state of the art classroom for departmental training and presentations
  • a fitness gym for employees
