Have you always wanted to be a police officer? The Las Cruces police department is now accepting applications for its training academy tentatively schedule for September.

Applications need to be received by the City of Las Cruces no later than May 12, but the earlier the better, according to LCPD. 
The starting salary for cadets is $15.50 per hour. Upon graduation from the 20-week academy, police officer trainees hired by LCPD earn $17.83 per hour and are eligible for a $3,000 retention bonus.

Most of the academy is classroom instruction while the approximately 25 percent is field training in and around Las Cruces. Applicants are required to be U.S. citizens, at least 19 years old when the academy begins, and have at least a high school diploma and no felony convictions.
