Patrol Division



The Patrol Division works diligently 24 hours a day to ensure the safety of the Roswell community, as well as all visitors. The Roswell Police Department patrolmen and women not only enforce the law, but also promote safety within the 29 square miles of the Roswell city limits.  Some Officers are cross-commissioned with the Chaves County Sheriff's Office, which means the officers can work within the city limits as well as outside them within Chaves County. 


One veteran officer says it is "nice not being in an office setting, you are always out and about responding to different situations." Being on patrol gives officers a variety of opportunities to serve the public, from responding to traffic accidents and taking incident reports to assisting with medical calls, making public crime-prevention presentations, and helping citizens in many other ways, many of which can often not be anticipated at the beginning of each shift. Officers must always be ready for anything.


RPD also employs Police Service Aides. They help handle non-crime-related incidents, freeing up police officers to be where they are most needed to handle criminal incidents and conduct investigations. The PSAs are well-trained and dedicated, and are a key part of the police department.


RPD also has School Resource Officers (SROs), who are fully commissioned officers who can also assist the Patrol Division when needed. The Roswell Independent School District has welcomed SROs into public schools not only to help deter any criminal activity, but to also be another positive resource for Roswell's youth, which includes, as one longtime officer puts it, "helping young people make better choices." Along with school guidance counselors, the School Resource Officers aim to guide students to make wise decisions in all aspects of their lives, with the goal of helping Roswell's youth become productive and positive members of society.


The Patrol Division is committed to continue developing positive relationships within the Roswell community. The Roswell Police Department is regularly pursuing qualified and committed citizens who possess the passion and fortitude to become law enforcement officers with the City of Roswell. For more information, or to obtain an application, contact the Training/Recruiting Officer at (575) 624-6770 ext. 108, or the City of Roswell Human Resources office at (575) 637-6268.
