LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — The Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Office is set to host the New Mexico Sheriff’s Association Conference.
The four-day conference and training event in Las Cruces is scheduled to begin Aug. 20.
Officials say the gathering will provide needed training for deputies.
Homeland Security Investigations also is scheduled to attend to discuss ways the federal agency is helping New Mexico law enforcement authorities fight drug and human trafficking.
Last year, sheriffs from New Mexico’s 33 counties organized themselves under the new group aimed at offering deputies advanced training and building a lobbying force to help change various state laws.
