Please help us to keep Lea County safe!
It is an exciting time to live in Lea County. We
are currently experiencing unprecedented growth and financial prosperity. The Lea County Sheriff’s
Department diligently strives to provide the most efficient and professional level of service and protection to the citizens
of the county. With nearly 5,000 square miles to patrol, suspicious or criminal activity often goes undetected
by law enforcement. The Wise Eyes program helps fill this gap with the eyes and ears of the county’s
residents and workers. This is a tremendous benefit to the Sheriff’s Department and can have a significant impact on
the reduction of all crimes. Together, we can quickly identify and respond to suspicious activity and make
safer communities for us all. The Lea County Sheriff’s Department is proud to support and provide
the Wise Eyes program. Your decision to participate is greatly appreciated.
