I served 45 years in law enforcement including two four year terms as Sheriff of Luna County (2007-2011 & 2011-2014) retiring at the end of 2014. I prayed each day I would not have to face an EOW during my administration. I was blessed not having to endure it. My thoughts are always with my successors and all Emergency Responders whose service I appreciate. My Lord, Bless each and every law enforcement officer on whom we depend to keep us safe. Keep them safe.
