ALBUQUERQUE – U.S. Attorney Damon P. Martinez paid tribute to Officer Clint Corvinus of the Alamogordo Police Department this morning during the Officer’s public memorial service at the Tays Event Center of the New Mexico State University in Alamogordo, N.M.  The U.S. Attorney delivered the following remarks:

“On behalf of the Attorney General of the United States of America, the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the entire federal law enforcement community, I want to express our deepest condolences.

“Today we come together to grieve for Officer Corvinus and, to the extent possible, to comfort his family and loved ones as they struggle to deal with the profound void left by his passing.  

“In New Mexico, the law enforcement community knows no divide – state, county, local, tribal and federal – we are all just law enforcement.  We all work together and support each other every day.  On this day, we all share the sorrow of losing Officer Corvinus. 

“With the permission of the family and [Alamogordo Police] Chief [Daron] Syling, I will read a letter of condolence from U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.”
