Dear Citizens and Visitors,
Welcome to the Belen Police Department's web page. As the chief law enforcement officer for the City of Belen, it is my duty to protect the lives and property of all citizens, and to enforce all local, state and federal laws. This website is one of the many tools that our department utilizes to communicate with the citizens, visitors and others we diligently serve.
I strive to run our department with sound principals and I am fortunate to have police officers that are dedicated, and do their jobs with compassion, ethics, and morals without prejudice and bias.
We are a full service department that takes great pride in offering high quality, highly trained and well-equipped professional police officers to the citizens of Belen. We are committed to being the best Police Department in the area. We take a personal approach to policing, with many citizens calling officers by their first names.
We are committed toward improving the quality of life for all citizens and seek continual improvement of our services; and ask for your input to help us achieve our goals. The door to my office is always open. I encourage anyone who would like to speak with me to contact me at the Belen Police Department with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you might have. Take a few moments visit our website.

The Neighborhood Watch program is a community-based program that has proven to deter crime. The program encourages residents to look out for each other, to take an active roll in the safety of their neighborhood and by watching for unusual activity, helps reduce burglaries and robberies.
Through the Neighborhood Watch program citizens learn how to take preventative measure that substantially decreases the likelihood of them becoming a victim. They learn how to make their homes more secure, and to look out for each other.
Meetings are determined by the neighborhood and include discussions on drugs, gangs, child safety and identity theft. An Officer is involved in the Neighborhood Watch program, which brings neighbors together as friends and helps rekindle the spirit of “community” that many areas in Belen have lost over the years.
