I feel that I have also been a victim of their abuse and something should be done about it. Our community needs respect and justice not abuse from these neglectful officers. They are a bunch of control freaks that like to judge people on their own and take matters into their own hands. I agree that these dept. is corrupt.
How do we

Maybe you talk about them like that because you were stopped and given a ticket for whatever reason and you did not like that?

No you didn't. You cannot pick up Socorro on your scanner.

No you didn't pick it up on your scanner. If you did you would know the truth about how un-corruted it is next to EPPD and the EPSO. Get your facts straight before being a loud mouth.

You say that you were a victim. Did you do anything about it? Did you follow the apropriate steps?

Office ortega is an unqualified person who treats the tax payers with no respect. Just today he supposedly spoted me 1 mile down the road not making a complete stop. He then stuck his hand out the window pointing me down to stop by his window then gave me a lecture and then tried to make it seem like he was letting me off. If i really did not make a complete stop then do your job right pull me over then talk to me don't point me down like a dog. This dept is a joke and will forever be a joke they shold disband and let the sheriffs protect and serve us like it used to be.

SOCORRO POLICE IS A JOKE, OFFICER ORTEGA IS AN IDIOT, VARELA WANABE DETECTIVE IS ALSO AN IDIOT. OVERALL ALL ARE CORRUPT AND IDIOTS EXCEPT FOR THE BAILIF WHO IS VERY PROFESSIONAL. Glad I am out of that department and I now work for real police department LAPD.

I agree with you, Socorro PD treated me like shit when I first started my career in law enforcement. I saw Ortega do some crazy shit,like stop people and harrass them just because they looked Mexican. Then there were two officers that taught they were super cops, I believe it was Varela and Acosta, there were complete idiots. I agree that the balif at that time was very professional as well as the male dispatcher named Angel. I now work for the largest and best Sheriff department in the world, the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department with all the respect for LAPD LA GUY. I wish I could invite socorro police officers just one night to patrol the dangerous streets of Los Angeles, just one night. Socorro police took my dream of what I really wanted , but then GOD opened a door and brought my dream back and now I can say I am a proud to be a police officer.

And the time has come! City hall, Socorro PD, Trini Lopez, City Council, and everyone that played part in corruption, will get what they deserve. Hope the Socorro court administration and Ortega aka #254, are next. I haven't seen that "poor excuse of an officer" lately but i hope everything he did to me and our fellow citizens, catches up with him soon. Officer Ortega charged at me wanting to fight after i filled a complaint on him with Socorro PD. He was never disciplined even after Numerous complaints.

Hey Magallanes your right, it is a matter of time when everyone involved in the Socorro corruption will get what they deserve. I was stopped by this Ortega officer for a minor infraction such as defective equipment. This officer treated me like shit in front of my wife and children and like an abiding citizen I just signed the ticket and drove away without hassle. I know some officers in that department that are good officers and have treated me with dignity and respect. Officer Rodriguez and Correa. And for "Detective" J. Varela, the nightmare is not over, there is more shit comming towards you. Hope the city of Socorro changes for good, and that these corrupt officers never patrol and serve the citizens of Socorro.
