His experience is immense - apparently you didnt pay attention. As for power hungry - where is there proof of that? I do not work for the department but work in an office that does and have seen great improvement and have heard nothing but respect.

Unfortunately he has sided with the Black Helicopter crowd and refused to sign the law enforcement agreement with the Forest Service.

What office do you work in? And using the word immense to describe his experience is like saying Obama has immense experience; they both are the same... Lack any knowledge of leadership or experience...

As an employee of the Sheriffs Office I can assure you House does not have the respect of the department and things are not better then they were under Blansett; they are in some ways worse; and his Undersheriff, Hunter, is on the verge of breaking the law everytime he does something.

Please tell us who you are getting your information from; his wife, Hunter, are maybe the wife of his little sidekick, his Capt?

This department is counting the days until he and Hunter are gone...

To be a manager, one must lead by example, and here is the example prsented by House....
He violates hiring protocal, and hires his political friend's or their children. Yes, their children, fresh out of high school. He allows Hunter, his Undersheriff, to do whatever he wants... and acknowledges that he doesn't agree with what Hunter does, but since it gets results, that's ok. He is just like Blansett, in that he targets deputies, and holds a grudge, creating a hostile working environment... and takes credit for the work of others, namely receiving kudos for the work the deputies are completeing, even though none of the current deuties were hired by him.... but, you the citizens, will reap the rewards of the idiots he did hire for years to come.... ENJOY...

You must be one of the "kids" whose parents supported him, and now have a job because of it... a job you didn't deserve, nor are prepared for... but I'm sure your a special friend....

You should have voted for the quality of the candidate and not his political affiliation. We would have had a better Sheriff.

I work for House and like him personally. As a friend and as a man I respect him and enjoy his company. As a Sheriff I am disappointed. His guys don't respect him at all, and the previous poster who said he has been hiring his political friends/friends kids is right on the money. Kyle Graham (Deputy) was hired because he was seen by the entire county putting up Benny House signs all over the county and kissing butt at every political event. Batte was hired because her dad owns half the mountain, the owner of Si Senor was hired as an evidence tech and quit two days later because he had zero computer skills, But..he donated a bunch of money to the campaign so that makes up for the lack of CPU skills. If House could let go of his political commiments and treat the entire county as equals, I think he could be a great Sheriff. We have an excess of well qaulified and well educated men/women getting out of the military and graduating from NMSU, who could truly be well educated, well respected members of our Sheriff's Office, but as another had already said, we will now have his friends/contributers children for years to come. House needs to focus more on the county and less on his next re-election. If you are a supporter or he thinks you have any pull in the county, you will be appauled by this post. You will thinnk I am disgruntled or angry...I'm not. I'm happy and love my job, but...I have personally seen him bend over backwards to appease the "I know Benny" crowd. Which isn't fair to the thousands of people in this county who don't know him and deserve equal treatment from our Sheriff. When it is all said and done, if he would just stop with the unfair hiring practices, he would earn the respect of many who are quickly falling off his wagon. Lets get back to putting the best man/woman in the job, not the one who will have the biggest political payoff in 3 years.

That office is totally political around here. The election itself laid that bare. Even the Commission Chair noted his support of Wally for the job until he ran on the wrong party ticket. Framed like that you get a politician sheriff thinking in the same political terms that brung him.

I've been reading about a much greater number of drug busts since House took over. People are being arrested for very serious crimes. The Sheriff's Dept. has an improved partnership with the DPS. I don't have any personal knowledge of internal problems, so I won't comment, but I'm certain the OCSD is working hard to fight crime all over the county. I'm reminded of that fact almost everytime I read the newspaper.

I would rather have a local get the office then the other that ran against Benny who was pro fed. If you look around the pro fed guys who are ex federal employees or agents have odd beliefs and ways that do not go in the publics favor, turning most departments into fearing the public and making them aggressive towards the public.

OCSONEU is making busts daily it seems. You read about the NEU department daily. Where do you read about ADPSNEU. Never... Benny House has an incredible NEU unit and i applaud them for their hard work and determination to get drugs and criminals off the street.
