When Mora County residents dial 911, they reach dispatchers from the state police. That’s the way it’s been for years.
But Mora County Sheriff Roy Cordova contends that the state police have kept his deputies out of the loop when it comes to major crimes in his county.
“If there is a homicide or something big, they hesitate to call my office. But if it’s small like someone calling about a neighbor’s dog in their yard, the state police will call us,” Cordova said. “I would like a courtesy call about what’s going on.”
