City of Las Cruces Names Miguel Dominguez as Police Chief

Chief Dominguez

The City of Las Cruces has selected Miguel Dominguez as its Chief of Police.

Dominguez has been a Las Cruces resident since 1985. He graduated in 2003 from LCPD’s 34th Academy and has most recently served as Interim Chief upon the retirement of Patrick Gallagher earlier this year.

Previously, Dominguez served as Deputy Chief of Field Operations from 2016 to 2018, and in September 2018, was named Deputy Chief of Investigations and Administrative Support Services. He has also served as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Patrol Sergeant, Lieutenant in Patrol and Special Services, and the West Area Commander. 

The City is certainly going to benefit from the experience Chief Dominguez brings to this position. He has served the City for nearly two decades. We look forward to what Chief Dominguez and his law enforcement team will bring to the City.

Dominguez was chosen from an initial group of eight qualified candidates, who were further narrowed down and interviewed by a Hiring Panel. The remaining candidates were then interviewed by an Employee Panel and Community Panel, before final interviews were conducted.

Chief Dominguez begins serving the City as Police Chief immediately.
