To serve, to protect the rights of people, and to promote and perserve the peace within the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo (YDSP).

YDSP Tribal Police serve the Pueblo Community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


TPD consists of a team of dedicated professionals that provide excellent service, which enhances the quality of life for the Pueblo Community that they serve.  Chief Raul Candelaria and his officers patrol the Tribal Communities, follow-up on investigations of all crimes, and ensure that Pueblo rights are respected and followed. TPD enjoys an excellent reputation as one of the premier Tribal Law Enforcement Agencies as attested to by reviews by the U.S. Department of Justice.
