Volunteer of the Month
The Portales Police Department was named Volunteers of the Month for their work in the community during the holiday season. Officers were able to continue their Operation Santa Cop despite the pandemic requiring changes to the popular program. The effort was especially important as families in the community are struggling financially. The Department also helped the Chamber with traffic control during the “Reverse” Christmas Light Parade, which turned out to be a stressful assignment because of the large turnout. Accepting the award was PPD Detective Nicholas Sanchez.
