Jeremy Story appointed deputy police chief


Las Cruces Police Department Chief Miguel Dominguez has announced that Lt. Jeremy Story, who has overseen LCPD’s Law Enforcement Training Academy since 2020, has been appointed deputy chief of LCPD Operations effective Oct. 23.

 As deputy chief, Story will oversee the department’s three patrol shifts along with the traffic unit, SWAT team and police service aides, the City of Las Cruces said in a news release. He also has served as commander of the LCPD Honor Guard.

 Story has been a lieutenant with LCPD since 2018 and has served as a commissioned officer since graduating from the department’s 38th police academy in 2007. Story was valedictorian of his graduating class.

 In 2012, Story earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from New Mexico State University, the city said.

Story joins Kiri Daines as an LCPD deputy chief. Daines oversees Investigations and support services, including LCPD’s criminal investigations section, intelligence unit, the Law Enforcement Training Academy, community outreach, administrative programs and metro narcotics. Daines has served as a Deputy Chief since 2020.

 Story replaces Deputy Chief Paul Brock who retired from LCPD in September.
