The Rio Arriba Sheriff’s Office will always provide services to the public and we will at this time remain open. The deputies will continue proudly to work to serve and protect the public during this outbreak. Although in an effort to provide the best services some social distances and various measures have been initiated by Sheriff James D. Lujan and his command staff.
Deputy Sheriffs have been reminded to exercise caution during this public health emergency and have been provided protective gear to handle calls for service and a special team has been organized to respond if required.
The method to respond to calls for service at this time, during this public health emergency is as follows;
* Minor motor vehicle crashes, no second driver crashes, thefts, burglaries after the fact, and vandalism with no suspect information, please call (505) 753-3320 and leave a call back number a deputy will reach you for the information and handle the call.
* Deputies will not be physically dispatched to this location to take a report for these type of incidents, the call will be handled either way.

* The protocol will be in effect until further notice.
The Rio Arriba sheriff’s animal services officers will also be under this method of calls for service, they will not impound animals unless it has physically attacked or injured a person or another animal. If a report needs to be generated and if possible it will be done over the telephone at the Rio Arriba Sheriff’s office either in Tierra Amarilla or Espanola, each call will be handled on a case by case basis or otherwise directed by a commander on duty.

Dear Sheriff James D. Lujan - FASCIST WHITE POWER SCUM!!!
God Bless Deputy Jerry Albo, the Rio Arriba Sheriff's Department, and the New Mexico State Police! He and State Trooper Daniel Martinez made the decision to bring us to our temporary home in Taos after we had an accident in Carson National Forest while returning from a day trip. Instead of leaving us up in the mountains in freezing temperatures, they ensured that we got back to our hotel safely, which allowed Lala (our special needs daughter) to have her medication as soon as possible. If either of you come to Texas for a visit, please look us up; we owe you the world. God bless all of you, and Merry Christmas! Ray Storey, US Army (Retired)
These are the cowards who use a stun gun on mentally disabled.
Bet this deputy feels like big man now that he has tortured and tormented a child. I guarantee you that"deputy" would be a special needs case, feeding tube and a wheel chair, if the coward ever did that to my kid. Funny this story isn't on your page?
Want are you doing?
Please share. Let's make this POS famous
