Lately, Sandoval County has been getting improvements. Law enforcement is also on the list it would seem.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham was joined by county officials and law enforcement leadership on Tuesday to announce $5.7 million in funding for a new Sandoval County Public Safety Complex.

Both the Sandoval County Sheriff’s Office and the county’s Emergency Operations Center will be in the new complex.

“It is critical that we provide law enforcement and first responders with every tool they need to safety and effectively protect New Mexican lives and property,” said Lujan Grisham. 

The state’s goal with the new complex is to not only improve law enforcement facilities, but to increase emergency response efforts.

“We are grateful to the governor for her continued support of first responders and law enforcement in Sandoval County,” Sandoval County Manager Wayne Johnson said.
