Mesilla Valley Regional Dispatch Authority



The mission of the Mesilla Valley Regional Dispatch Authority is to provide 9-1-1 emergency and non-emergency communications services to our Public Safety Partner Agencies and Community so they can both deliver and experience a safe, accurate and timely response.


Serving The Community of Doña Ana County

The Mesilla Valley Regional Dispatch Authority (MVRDA) was created in 1989 through a Joint Powers Agreement between the City of Las Cruces and Doña Ana County, becoming the first consolidated dispatch center in the State of New Mexico.

MVRDA is the 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for Doña Ana County, the City of Las Cruces, the City of Sunland Park, the City of Anthony, the Town of Mesilla, and the Village of Hatch. We are also responsible for dispatching the law enforcement, fire services, and emergency medical services agencies in those jurisdictions.

MVRDA’s operational area covers 3,814 square miles in southern New Mexico and serves a population of approximately 219,500 residents. In 2023, the Center received 351,503 telephone calls resulting in 328,422 incidents dispatched.
