“The mission of the New Mexico Rangers is to support and defend the constitution of the State of New Mexico by providing trained and qualified Law Enforcement augmentation in support of Law Enforcement Organizations tasked with providing public safety services to our community. This we will accomplish by fulfilling the duties and responsibilities as defined by New Mexico law with a determination to meet the growing expectations of our citizens”.
“Our vision is to ensure the future quality of life for our citizens as our communities grow. We will set the standard in public safety through innovation, flexibility, and commitment while recruiting and retaining superior personnel to enhance local law enforcement organizations. Through community support we will strategically plan and prepare for the necessary resources to meet future needs in support of Law Enforcement".
“As a member of the New Mexico Rangers, my fundamental obligation is to protect the constitutional rights and freedoms of the people whom I have been sworn to uphold. While I consider the way I choose to conduct my private affairs a personal freedom, I accept the responsibilities for my actions, as well as inactions, while on duty or off duty, when those actions bring disrepute on the public image of the New Mexico Rangers, the law enforcement organization I am supporting, my colleagues, and the criminal justice profession.
I vow to perform all my duties in a professional and competent manner. I consider the abilities to be courageous in the face of danger and to exercise restraint in the use of my powers and authorities to be the ultimate public trust. I accept that I must consistently strive to achieve excellence in learning the necessary knowledge and skills associated with my duties. I will keep myself physically fit and mentally alert so that I am capable of performing my duties according to the standards of quality expected of my position.
I vow to be fully truthful and honest in my dealings with others. I deplore lies and half-truths that mislead or do not fully inform those who must depend upon my honesty. I understand that during the course of an official investigation I may need to build upon reasonable suspicion and/or probable cause by sharing fictitious statements or as yet unsubstantiated information in order to ultimately gather evidence of fact. This in no way diminishes my commitment to truthfulness, and actually reaffirms my responsibility to seek the truth.
I will obey the very laws that I am sworn to uphold. I will seek affirmative ways to comply with the standards of my agency and the lawful directions of my supervisors.I vow to treat others with courtesy at all times. I consider it to be a professional weakness to allow another’s behavior to dictate an unprofessional response. I will not allow others’ actions or failings to be my excuse for not performing my duties in a responsible and professional and expected manner.
I vow to empathize with the problems of people with whom I come into daily contact. However, I cannot allow my personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence the discretionary authorities entrusted to my job. I will affirmatively seek ways to avoid conflicts and potential conflicts of interest that could compromise my official authority of public image.
I hold the authority inherent in my position to be an affirmation for the public’s trust in me as a member of the New Mexico Rangers. I do not take this trust lightly. As long as I remain in this position, I will dedicate myself to maintaining this trust and upholding all the ideals and long standing traditions of the New Mexico Rangers.”
