Fire in the mountains you can see it from taco parking lot on panorama
When are the Fireworks supposed to stop? They're going off all around us and my dogs dont want to go outside
Hey David Black or Shawn Jett! I have a few questions for you guys. 1- are the people of the mountain not tax payer that also support you guys and have through thick and thin? 2- why is there not a presence at night? So this is the issue that is very concerning to me and should be to rest of the people who live up there. One there is a problem with theft and drug use not to mention the idiots speeding all the time. Would you not think that the idiots stealing crap know your schedule or they not teach that stuff in the academy anymore. Last night at 12:30 in the morning I got the worst call a parent could get that your child has been in a wreck and you guys dam well know how that mountain is and the wrecks at night. So of course you can imagine the fear in your heart. I get his location which is just a little outside of the county but closer for Otero county to respond I contact Chavez county dispatch do the normal questions and answers. As talking to dispatch I ask if it is possible to ask for mutual aid since the mountain has deputies there unknown at the time they are not on shift. guess criminal only operate during the day time. She actually agrees and I make my way to the scene of accident in a rush. Mind you this is after midnight only see 3 cars the entire trip. I get to the scene his mom had made it to him from the other direction from mayhill little before me and no deputy there. I call the lady at otero county dispatch by the way she was great to talk with. I am informed there is no deputies on duty at night I was appalled by that. I called Chavez county back I beat that officer by 45 min and I came from Carlsbad. So we were very fortunate that it was not a life and death situation but very well could have been and what you have nobody there. As a tax payer in that county I find this very disturbing that the mountain community is not getting that service they pay for and pay your safeties for that service. Don’t get me wrong I am in no way bashing on the deputies that are employees there but yes I am on you two. I guess you don’t have anymore ties there now since you aren’t working for Cloudcroft PD. This is also going to be brought up to the county commissioners. By the way I have reached out to you David. At least Benny would call a person and took care of the county maybe you can ask him for some pointers.
If I get bit by a dog while on a run in Chaparral because leash laws are not followed. What should I do? I just want to go on a peaceful run. I just want law enforcement to do their job. Please read the law below as you should know it. Thank you. Message me if you want addresses where incidents accure. I don't want to call 911 and don't have your stations number. Chapter 105 D. Tethering of animals; tethering devices. (1) A rope, chain, or other device may be used to tether a dog or other animal on one's property, provided the following criteria are met: (a) The device must be affixed to the animal by use of a nonabrasive, comfortably fitted collar or harness. (b) The device must be at least 10 feet long. The device must be fastened so the animal can sit, walk and lie down comfortably; and must be unobstructed by objects that may cause the device or animal to become entangled or strangled. Any chain or tether shall have swivels on both ends.
My son and I stopped by Dunkin this afternoon to surprise my daughter with her favorite drink on her day off . . . This officer paid for our order. Thank you, Sherriff. Blessings to you and yours, always.
Are people allowed to shoot off fire-works in Otero County that dont live in a city?
50 mph on Karr Canyon Rd this afternoon. Attempted to pass on sharp curve in no passing zone and almost wiped us into the embankment. #Reported to OCSO
THANK YOU for your service. This is not said nearly often enough.
With everything that is going on I just want to say Thank You to the Sheriff's Department! DEFEND LAW ENFORCEMENT!!!!!
Please be on the watch for anyone defacing park signs. Today my family and I saw a sign on the fence at Griggs spray painted in red with the letters "FTP".
Thank you for your professionalism and for the extra focus required from recent threats. Stay safe
How is 130 to Mayhill?
