Community Policing
The Los Lunas Police Department has adopted a community policing philosophy throughout the Village, building a stronger partnership with its customers to better respond to the needs of the community. Officers are encouraged to get to know the customers residing in their assigned neighborhoods and business areas to discuss problems and solutions together.

Educational Law Enforcement
The Los Lunas Police Department has adopted an educational philosophy of law enforcement with "public safety of its customers" its primary responsibility.  Officers are encouraged to educate the public in the enforcement of laws with verbal or written warnings for the first time offenders where appropriate.

Reduction of crime/liability

We have also assigned officers to the regional drug and gang task forces, assigned an officer to the schools, assigned officers to the juvenile drug court and teen court, and created an Internet and computer crimes unit.
