NMSP Host Three-Day #StrongerTogether Event Oct. 24-26 In Espanola



The New Mexico State Police will be hosting a three-day #StrongerTogether Community Event Oct. 24-26 in Espanola.

The event will begin Thursday Oct. 24, with NMSP officers, Adult Probation Office and Project Race meeting with students at Carlos Vigil Middle School for a day of fun, and discussions on drug awareness.

The event continues Friday, Oct. 25 with a cookout at the Espanola Walmart where  officers  will meet and greet the public and enjoy burgers and hot dogs. The day concludes with a Public Forum at Carlos Vigil Middle School where officers will hear from the community about how NMSP can better serve them.

“Our officers are community members themselves,” said Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. “We need to work hard at building and maintaining strong bonds between public safety officers and the New Mexicans they serve.”

The three-day event will wrap up Saturday, Oct. 26 at Carlos Vigil Middle School with a community day where those in attendance will learn what our officers do on the job.  Officers will provide self-defense techniques, work outs, and real-life scenarios to those who wish to participate.

“Community policing is something I take very seriously” said NMSP Chief Tim Johnson, “and events like this give my officers the opportunity to engage in a positive manner with the citizens we work for.”

The event will include free food, games, giveaways and more. We are stronger when we work together. #StrongerTogether
