Codes Enforcement, part of the Las Cruces Police Department, helps enforce codes and regulations that promote the health, safety, and welfare of everyone who lives in Las Cruces. The mission of Codes Enforcement is to preserve the environment and beauty of our city.
Michael Roach serves as Codes Enforcement supervisor and oversees 14 Codes officers who initiate or respond to roughly 17,000 calls for service each year. Codes commonly self-generates its workload and handles such calls as excessive weeds, trash and inoperable vehicles to name a few.
Codes Enforcement officers regularly partners with Las Cruces police officers from the department’s Community Engagement section. Together, they host neighborhood cleanups and other events that benefit and help beautify Las Cruces.
