Las Cruces Starts "Red Light" Camera Phone Line

Las Cruces – The Las Cruces Police Department has dedicated an automated telephone line to help answer some of the most commonly asked questions associated with the city's photo enforcement camera system.

The telephone line, (575) 528-4161, is operational 24 hours a day and answers several questions associated with the city's photo enforcement cameras. The photo enforcement cameras, operational at three intersections in Las Cruces, are maintained by Redflex Traffic Systems. The cameras capture speeding and red light violations.

Photo enforcement cameras are located on Lohman Avenue at Telshor Boulevard, Lohman Avenue at Walnut Street, and on Valley Drive at Avenida de Mesilla. The cameras monitor traffic heading in both directions along Lohman and the northbound traffic along Valley.

Some of the questions answered by LCPD's automated phone line include how to contest a Redflex citation, how to make a payment and how to forward a citation to the driver who committed the violation. The automated phone line answers more than 10 of the most commonly asked questions LCPD regularly receives pertaining to the photo enforcement cameras.
