Q. What kind of requests can be made?

1. Requesting the New Mexico Mounted Patrol for a single event
2. Requesting the New Mexico Mounted Patrol's assistance for specific days of the week.
3. Requesting the New Mexico Mounted Patrol as backup officers as they become available
4. Requesting by service agreement that New Mexico Mounted Patrol officers are 24 hour peace officers anytime they are present within their jurisdiction.
Each agency determines if they wish to make individual requests or if they choose to make a blanket written request.
