Police Chief Kirk Roberts

Message from the Chief

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Artesia Police Department’s website. Our department is comprised of dedicated men and women serving in both sworn and civilian capacities, helping to make certain that the citizens of Artesia enjoy the best quality of life possible. We provide service to the city on a twenty-four hour a day basis through the efforts of sworn officers, community service officers, animal control officers and a dedicated and professional office staff. In addition to our first response capabilities, our department offers top-notch criminal investigators, an outstanding multi-agency tactical response team and a school resource officer program that has gained international acclaim.

It is important to note that we could not accomplish our goals without the support of a city government that provides unequaled commitment to staff and function. We are well equipped and well prepared to respond to emergencies within the community and we understand that each and every call for service is of the utmost importance to those asking for our help. It is our honor to serve those who live in, do business in and go to school in our city. We strive to meet our community’s high standards and to live up to the city’s proud heritage as the City of Champions.

Should you have any questions or need any additional information, please feel free to contact our staff. We hope that you enjoy viewing our website and we welcome you to call upon us for service. Please visit our Human Resources webpage for information about becoming a member of our proud police family and sharing in our achievements.
