Las Cruces police wish to remind park-goers that City parks are open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. and must be vacated during the overnight hours.
Police have received a handful of complaints about some individuals over-extending their visits or camping overnight in City parks.
Police and Codes Enforcement officers will increase overnight patrols at all Las Cruces parks. Anyone found trespassing after-hours will first be asked to leave. Failure to comply with the City ordinance can result in a misdemeanor charge with a fine of $500 or incarceration up to 90 days.
