5 safety t ips from the Chief With the holiday seasons upon us, I would like to leave you with 5 tips to ensure your safety and security. 1. ALWAYS lock your doors. Whether you are home or away it is always a good rule of thumb to keep the doors locked to your homes, sheds, vehicles and other places in which you would want to keep a thief from entering. 2. When you are walking to or away from a building know your surroundings. When placing purchased items into your vehicle and while taking them out be cognizant of vehicles, and people around you. 3. Ensure your smoke alarms and fire extinguishers are within appropriate dates of expiration. Test your alarms to ensure they are working properly. If you need assistance in testing your alarms the Police Department and the Fire Department would be available to do help you. 4. Place decorative lights on a timer, unplug them, or otherwise turn them off while you are away and while you are sleeping. 5. Should you see anything or anyone who appears to be suspicious I urge you to contact law enforcement. Please know that each agency is a department in which records are kept and daily operations are run; each department usually runs on a regular business schedule. I strongly encourage you to add the Torrance County non-emergency Dispatch Center’s number to your contact list; whether it be in a cell phone or written somewhere accessible in your home. This number should be used in non-emergency situations only, otherwise call 911. Should you wish to speak with me directly or would like more tips in ensuring your safety this holiday season, please do not hesitate in contacting me.

Good afternoon, This weekend law enforcement was called for a complaint of an altercation. It was alleged that the Estancia Police Officer and the Torrance County Deputy failed to take action against the alleged assailant. This allegation has caused great concern for the citizens within the town of Estancia. After reviewing the video of the call I felt it necessary to reassure the citizens of this town that the law enforcement officers who responded to that call handled it properly and to the full extent of the law. Law enforcement within this county and this municipality are diligent and that of integrity. The man to whom allegations were made has sought the medical attention he was in need of. At no time during the initial call for service nor the interactions thereafter warranted his arrest or charges for criminal behavior. It is this department, and the law enforcement within to ensure the safety of our citizens.

Please be safe while celebrating our freedom today. From our family to yours, happy 4th of July!
