LAS CRUCES, NM – The Doña Ana Sheriff’s Office is announcing limited in-person services, beginning Thursday, March 19th until further notice, in response to New Mexico Governor Lujan Grisham’s declaration of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency and the new guidance from White House officials. As of Wednesday, March 25, 2020, our office at 845 Motel Boulevard, Las Cruces, will open to the public only on Wednesdays from 8:00AM to 5:00PM.

The Anthony Substation will close to the public beginning Thursday, March 19, 2020. Please call 575-525-1911 between 8:00AM and 5:00PM, Monday through Friday for any non-emergency needs for this location as well as our main station. Our office staff continues to serve you by phone as needed. There will be charge for copies of reports.

These changes are in effect for the foreseeable future. We are limiting public contact for everyone’s safety but we recognize some of our services can only be done in person. Our patrol operations, criminal investigations, service of process and court services continue to operate as normal.

Unclaimed Property

The Doña Ana County Sheriff's Department collects evidence and seizes goods in the pursuit of criminal investigations. In some cases, recovered property is not claimed by the rightful owners or is forfeited by convicted criminals. In both cases, Doña Ana County uses PropertyRoom.Com to assist with property liquidation. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each item obtained locally comes back to Doña Ana County and is dedicated to law-enforcement enhancement.
