The Support Services Division consists of one commander, one sergeant, two officers and 11 civilians. The commander and sergeant ensure the subdivisions of the Support Services Division work together smoothly so objectives are met in a timely fashion.
The Records section, guided by the records supervisor, maintains a wide variety of police records, from those documenting adult arrests to juvenile citations to accident reports, and many more. The Records section also assists Roswell residents who need background checks for employment reasons or to work with volunteer organizations. The Records section supports all other divisions within the police department by locating information on file or helping verify information requested by other RPD personnel. The public may also request certain records (see notice below).
One of the officers in the division is the Training Officer, who plays a major role in training new officers, as well as conducting many trainings throughout the year for all officers. The trainings are designed to ensure officers are mentally and physically equipped to deal with anything they may encounter while carrying out their duties. Meanwhile, the division's other officer, the Training/Recruiting Officer, is dedicated to recruiting and hiring people who are qualified and committed to enforcing the law. Any individual who possesses the passion and fortitude to become a law enforcement officer with the City of Roswell is encouraged to apply. Contact the Training/Recruiting Officer (575-624-6770 ext. 108) for information, or visit www.roswell-nm.gov to check on available positions.
The Training/Recruiting Officer also visits (sometimes with McGruff the Crime Dog) schools, libraries, community organizations and other places to share safety and crime-prevention tips, or talk on another topic the police can assist with. If you would like to schedule a presentation, please call 575-624-6770 ext. 108.
The Accreditation and Special Projects Manager is responsible for many things, including ensuring that RPD's policies and procedures are properly documented and maintained. Also, the processes and paperwork involved in accreditations and grants sought and received by the Roswell Police Department are handled by this position.
Along with the Accreditation and Special Projects Manager and those who work in the Records section, the Public Information Officer is also a civilian employee. The role of the PIO is to ensure transparency without compromising investigations. The Public Information Officer works alongside law enforcement to ensure correct information is disseminated not only to media, but also to the public, including through use of the RPD website and Facebook page. The PIO is committed to working with media to ensure the community of Roswell is accurately informed, as well as provided with safety and crime-prevention information to help citizens make their neighborhoods better places to live.
The Support Services Division is dedicated to serving personnel within the Roswell Police Department as well as all members of the Roswell community.
