About Us

Santa Clara Pueblo Conservation Officers will increase patrols in all hunting areas as Bow Hunting Season began on September 1-30th, 2023 and Rifle Season begins on October 1st to November 30th, 2023. We ask all hunters to abide by all Hunting Rules and Regulations. A copy of the most current Hunting Rules and Regulations can be obtained at the Administration Office or the Police Department.

Reporting of Crime

If anyone has information about criminal activity or a crime that has occurred within the jurisdiction of the Santa Clara Pueblo, you are encouraged to report such information to the Police Department. Your information can lead to criminal charges and/or arrest of suspect(s) and keep our community safe. You can call (505) 692-6290 and provide any information anonymously, if you wish. Remember the Police Department relies on your eyes and ears to work as a team for the betterment of all.
