Byrne JAG funds also support the New Mexico State Police in their effort to provide a variety of services to other state agencies, including: undercover personnel and contingency funds; hazardous material response officers; access to audio/visual surveillance equipment; and investigation efforts of clandestine methamphetamine labs throughout the state.
New Mexico State Police’s presence and expertise is needed most in rural areas of the state where local law enforcement agencies have limited access to resources. New Mexico Byrne JAG funding is instrumental to providing support for officer overtime to assist with highly complex investigations and operations and maintain effective partnerships with both regional MJTFs and other local, state, and several federal law enforcement agencies.
