When it comes to fighting crime, the sum of law enforcement agencies is often greater than the parts. That’s especially true in rural areas such as Mora County.
As such, it’s troubling to find out that the Mora County sheriff and the state police aren’t getting along. Indeed, their leaders aren’t even talking.
In Mora County, all 911 calls go to the state police. That makes sense because the Mora County Sheriff’s Department doesn’t operate around the clock. There are only five deputies, including the sheriff, and no detectives.
