I HAVE KNOWN CHIEF BILL MANSION FOR A LONG TIME.

HE HAS ALWAYS DONE THE BEST JOB POSSIBLE FOR

ANY AGENCY HE WORKED FOR.

EL PASO P.D.

CLINT P.D.

SOCORRO P.D.

HE HAS TAKEN PHONE CALLS FROM PEOPLE WITH PROBLEMS

AND I HAVE HEARD HIM GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO BE SURE THEY UNDERSTOOD, AND OFFERED TO SEE THEM IN
PERSON,IF NEEDED.

I KNOW HE HAS ANSWERED CALLS FROM ELDERLY CITIZENS
AND MADE GREAT EFFORTS TO ASSIST THEM,AND MAKE THEM FEEL A PART OF THE COMMUNITY.

CHIEF MANSION TOOK OVER THE SOCORRO P.D. DURING A
BAD TIME FOR THEM, AND DID HIS BEST TO HELP THE
DEPARTMENT THROUGH ROUGH TIMES,AND IMPROVE THE
CONDITIONS.

IT IS VERY EASY TO DASH OUT ANGRY WORDS ON AN INTERNET VENUE, BUT I AM IN WONDER AT SOME OF
THE MOTIVATIONS,AND WHO MAY BE BEHIND ALL THE
NEGATIVE COMMENTARY.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN ANY CHIEF HAS TO MAKE SOME
VERY DIFFICULT DECISIONS,AND WHEN THOSE TIMES
PRESENT THEMSELVES,BE THANKFUL TO THE GOOD LORD
THAT YOU HAVE A CHIEF WITH ENOUGH BACKBONE TO
MAKE THOSE DECISIONS.

REMEMBER THAT NO MATTER WHAT DECISIONS ARE MADE,
THERE WILL BE THOSE WHO ARE UNHAPPY WITH THOSE
DECISIONS.

I ALSO KNOW LT. DOVE, AND THINK HE IS A GOOD MAN,
AND WILL DO HIS BEST TO GIVE GOOD SERVICE.

WHILE AMERICA GIVES US ALL THE RIGHT TO SPEAK OUT,
AND THANK GOD FOR IT, IT ALSO SHOULD BE DONE IN A
RESPONSIBLE MANNER,KEEPING IN MIND THERE MAY BE
DETRACTERS WITH PERSONAL AXES TO GRIND.

NO, I DON'T WORK AT SOCORRO P.D.

I HAVE BEEN A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IN THIS AREA
FOR OVER FORTY YEARS,AND STILL PROUDLY SERVE.

Having had many times seeing socorro police in action, the problem is not the chief it is the pay, there are many good officers in socorro working for less than they are worth. As soon as they prove their worth they leave for better pay. Who would blame them. The police dept is made up of retirees and rejects, as shown when the rejects killed a prisoner by positional asphysiation. That happened before the new chief came in. Those that know avalos know he wanted the chiefs job and would stab the chief in the back to get the job with cox's help. To do a good job you need good people helping you, and good people dont come cheap. So quit complaining about a chief who is trying to do a good job and vote in a concil who will pay for good officers.

Don't be fooled by Avalos. I worked with him in the EPPD and he is a foolish, individual. He caused problems in EVERY SINGLE UNIT he worked in, from the Gang unit, to the SWAT team, until he was forced to retire. Why Wiles kept him as long as he did, is amazing. Jaime is a child, who causes problems until he is caught, then walks around puffing on his latest brand of smokes, with Bible in hand, preaching religion! As soon as he is given the opportunity, he does it all over again. Avalos is a fool!

I'm sorry, but it makes me ill to think about Jaime Avalos and all he destroyed! He is a liar.. LIAR... LIAR! He slept with so MANY WOMEN while working with EPPD, and let's not forget while he worked with Housing Authority! The double dipping he did while working with Housing and PD! Jaime is the little snitch who runs to Mommy and tells on Daddy, then runs back to Daddy and tells Daddy what Mommy said. He is an evil little evil leprechaun who does nothing but destroy everything in his path. His desire to make it to the top ALWAYS results in his demise... and so deserved! Jaime does not know what HONEST work is, because he is too busy screwing everyone else in the back! He deserved to be fired.

Do you think he's the only onw who "double dipped" with the Housing Authority while working for EPPD. What about the sainted Lt Dove ( or is he now Capt. Dove) currently Chief Mansion's hatchet man? If you want to smear one, smear them all with the same brush!

What a bunch of idiots. The officers (most of them) are trying to do the right thing. Too bad the leadership is so corrupt the officer are worried that at any time they might get fired over nothing. Hey Mansion, what's good for the goose is good for the gander. What about the allegation that your Lt. abused a prisoner who was mentally handicapped? ANd what about all that evidence that magically disappeared?

Jaime Alonso Avalos..HAS NO BUSINESS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT! The man has lust for power to become Chief of Police. He loves to surround himself with weak minded and dirty cops to form a click to met his objective in burning and backstabbling honest officers with the objective to maintain control as he desires!

JAIME ALONSO AVALOS. hides behind religon to do his dirty work..the man will go to hell when he dies where the devil will make love to him every night.

JAIME ALONSO AVALOS..is dirty!! he has been forced out of the El Paso Police Department, The Attorney Generals office, and has gotten in bed with dirty socorro politicians trini lopez and sergio cox to meet his objective..THIS IS NOT AN HONEST INDIVIDUAL!!

THIS MAN NEEDS TO FALL OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH!!

The Chief has hired his best friend LT Dove which he is a total screw up. He and Bill Mansion were Officers in EPPD for more than 15 years. But this Dove he was a cop on Pawn shop detail, but now he is second in command of the Police Dept. but he doesn't know where any thing is in town. He needs to quit and his partner Bill mansion too.
They should try to get back the former CPT Jaime Avalos he would make a great Chief.
Maybe you and Ms. Paris should be more informed as to the people that you wish to replace those that are already under investigation. The so-called person that you want to be brought back is also someone who is under investigation for wrong doing. Just thought you should be informed!

I will tell you, Dove is not Mansions bestfriend. Get over that thought. Dove was in because of AVALOS. Then Dove and Avalos went to work. Dove is a weak link and always has been. Avalos is a very corrupt little thing, and if you want him in, be prepared for police abuse!!!! I've seen him beat the hell out of people and then point fingers at others. We had to use "in-house" pressure to calm the little scum down. Other cops can't stand how he abuses the public, why in the world would you want him? Because he walks around with his little chin on the gound, and his bible in hand.. "NOBODY LOVES ME, EVERYBODY HATES ME, I'M GOING TO THE GARDEN....."

GET OVER AVALOS.. HE IS SCUM!!!!!

I'll put money on it that Jaime wrote that himself or it was one of his little girlfriends. That is how Jaime is.

Observer, ana paris, and Jose. Since the great Jaime Avalos has you too fooled seems like all or maybe one of his new lovers.....Maybe Connie.......Maybe Garcia........who knows, has set you up to undyingly defend him too. Do you all walk around with bible in hand (oh that's right Connie is a good Christian woman that attends Sun. church with Cox's wife) Seems to me he has carried on his legacy to the Socorro police dept with all his adulterous affairs. Anyone ask his wife what kind of outstanding individual he is??????

You obviously forget that Chief Mansion was brought into the Socorro Police Department to clean up! Corruption in Socorro was at an all time high and they needed someone with integrity and guts to clean house. NOw that it is happening you all have the nerve to gripe and complain. You should be thankful that he is trying to make good out of a bad situation. Oh and giving a gun and a badge to an un-naturalized citizen makes no sense. He shouldn't have been hired in the first place. Police Chief Mansion is doing a great job and should stay.

How dare you insult Ms. Connie Trumbo. She is Ms. Homemaker or is it Ms. Homewrecker. Has anyone wondered what she puts in her brownies???

Well I agree the Chief sounds like a total idiot, but look at everyone else in Socorro, the city manager who lost several hundred thousand dollars of funding by not doing her job, the city council members do not look to be rocket scientists either. I'm glad I don't live in Socorro anymore.
It's not that she wasn't doing her job, ignoramous, Minor Trini and Sergio Cox would break quorums, then Trini would schedule "special" meetings during the day when he very well knew that most of the council people would not be able to attend, since they are working so he could say that they did not want to attend (this is one of the oldest tricks in the book) thus, time would go by and the city manager would not be able to meet the schedule. duhh!!!
