On October 2nd and 3rd of 2014, the Hobbs Police Department investigated armed robberies at separate Family Dollar locations within the city limits. Investigation of the crime was done by the lead investigator on the case, Det. Nathan Eubank in conjunction with other detectives and officers of the Hobbs Police Department. Working in conjunction with Texas authorities, Carl Berry, of Hobbs, was arrested and charged in connection to those crimes.
In September 2015, the Hobbs Police Department investigated another armed robbery at a residence in which Berry was arrested and charged for the crime.
The District Attorney’s Office prosecuted Berry for the armed robberies. On February 2, 2016, Berry plead to the armed robberies and will serve 12 of 22 years for the Family Dollar robberies and serve 11 years concurrent for the 2015 robbery and must pay restitution to all victims.
DWI Enforcement January
January 4, 2016 – The Hobbs Police Department will be conducting DWI Checkpoints and Saturation Patrols throughout the month of January 2016. These checkpoints and saturation patrols will be conducted at undisclosed locations in an effort to locate persons operating motor vehicles under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs
Pre Incident Plan Program
The Hobbs Fire Department has begun updating contact information and detailed site plans of all businesses within the City of Hobbs. This is an annual process the department conducts in order to have current information available in the event of an emergency. These updated plans will be scanned into our database and utilized by the staff of the Hobbs Fire Department. The responding personnel will utilize this information to better assess the needs of the incident and determine the resources needed to mitigate the issue.
The information gathered and the responsibilities of the crew initiating the Pre-Incident plan will vary according to the building occupancy and overall size of the structure. Fire crews will be visiting area businesses to gather the information for the Pre-Incident plan. It is important to keep in mind this is not an inspection and is primarily for the response considerations and emergent efforts of our responding personnel. The pre-incident planning process also plays a vital role in our Insurance Service Office rating which could potentially affect fire department funding and insurance policy rates within the City of Hobbs.
We appreciate the cooperation of all business owners and citizens with respect to this process. The Hobbs Fire Departments commitment and overall concern for the community will continue to be important as we move forward. If you have any further questions or need additional information please contact Captain Paul Thompson at 575-397-9308.

Traffic Congestion on North Turner
Hobbs Police Department would like to remind citizens to drive with caution due to the high number of vehicles on North Turner from Sanger to Grimes Streets. Drivers are asked to slow down and make sure there is ample distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. The center lane is for left turning only. It is not a merge lane.
We are proud to adopt this latest technology and provide it to the citizens of Hobbs. Our goal is to increase the flow of information, allowing users to easily send us messages or ask questions, while also providing them with our latest news and services in one easy to use app. It is important to us to have a police app that allows our citizens to do a variety of things.
