Holiday Security Tips

November 25, 2015 – The holiday season is fast approaching and it can be one of the highest crime periods of the year, specifically theft crimes. Hobbs Police Department encourages citizens to take the following precautions as you prepare and shop for the upcoming holiday season.


- Consider carrying your identification, bank cards and/or money in pockets rather than in a purse. If you do carry a purse or bag, carry it close to your body at all times. Do not leave purses unattended in shopping carts or vehicles.
- Carry only small amounts of cash.
- Be very careful when using ATM machines. Pay close attention to what is going on around you.
- Always lock your vehicle when you leave it unattended.
- Park in well-lit areas when dark and avoid parking next to large vehicles, bushes or anything that can conceal a criminal wanting to break into a vehicle to steal something from you.
- Make a mental note where you parked and have the keys ready when you approach your vehicle. Always check your back seat prior to getting into your vehicle.
- Be watchful for suspicious persons. Be alert to individuals who follow you or watch you place items in your vehicle. Get a good description of the person(s) and report all suspicious activity or persons to police.
- For ladies carrying purses, do no leave purses in shopping carts while placing packages or bags in your vehicle.
- Lock all packages and valuables in vehicle trunks. Do not leave any items in plain view inside a vehicle.
At Home

- Keep gifts hidden from view through outside windows. (items that may be under a tree)
- Always lock all doors and windows when leaving your home.
- When leaving your home unattended, make sure a light or two is on during evening hours. Motion activated or timed lights are good for additional security.
- When away, stop delivery of newspaper and mail until you return.
- When arriving home, always be alert for anything unusual. If you do not feel comfortable going into your home, do not enter it and call Hobbs Police Department.
- Never open your door to someone you don’t know.
- Never place boxes from electronics purchased in the alley. Cut them up and place them in the trash cart.

Hobbs Police Department will conduct vacation checks on your home while you are away. Please call 397-9282 for details or come to the lobby at 300 North Turner. If you have any concerns about safety or security during the holiday season, please feel free to contact us. Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Latest Press Release

Rockwind Named One of Top 10 Best New Course by Golf Digest

The well-respected golf magazine, Golf Digest, released their annual “Top 10 Best New Courses and Best New Remodels” on Tuesday, and to the excitement of golfers and citizens alike, Rockwind Community Links was named #7. For the first time since 2009, course construction was so active across the country that the publication involved panelists in the Best New selection process, instead of making informal editors' picks, as had been done in year’s past. These panelists traveled to Hobbs to try out the highly touted municipal course for themselves, and when it was all said and done, rated Rockwind among the top. There were eight much pricier private or resort clubs, and only one other public course in the list, all far exceeding the price range of Rockwind Community Links.
