Dona Ana County Sheriff's Mounted Patrol started in 2000 as the result of an inaccessible crime scene
A volunteer unit was developed to provide remote law enforcement support, wilderness search & rescue, and evidence search.
The Mounted Patrol is still a volunteer organization, only much more capable.
The Mounted Patrol participates in missions activated by the Sheriff, including ongoing border security, warrant roundups,
crime scene security, disaster response, and New Mexico State search and rescue missions.
