Letter To The Editor: Office Of The Sheriff

Regardless of what any of us thinks about keeping the sheriff's office, the public decided the question of whether to have a sheriff.
 
Now is the time to carefully define the scope of duties so that this office does more than throw out the first calf at the annual rodeo but on the other hand, doesn't waste effort duplicating police duties.
 
Plus, any duty that involves the potential for violence or public interactions that could put the County at risk for a lawsuit requires personnel training that the county will have to pay to obtain.

Letter To The Editor: Sheriff And LAPD

Los Alamos sure must be a high crime area. The Sheriff needs a ¾ ton pickup complete with a radio, toolbox and a gooseneck trailer hitch, along with a police cruiser equipped with a cage for transportation, communication, and lights. The LAPD conducts a drug raid with half a dozen state troopers.

They even throw in a “bear in the air” for good measure. All I could think of was “You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant”. Officer Obie must be proud. For those of you under the age of 60, go ask your parents.
