1974: More than 100 law enforcement officers convened in Clovis for the fall meeting of the Texas South Plains and Eastern New Mexico Peace Officers Association.

The session focused on mutual problems and new approaches to solving them.

Police chiefs, sheriffs and prosecutors were represented, along with one of the FBI’s top firearms instructors.

Topics included the death penalty and a proposed five-year mandatory prison sentence for anyone committing a crime with a firearm.

Clovis’ Assistant District Attorney Bill Bonem talked about officer-prosecutor relations, emphasizing the need for prosecutors to confine themselves to the role of advocates, leaving police to do the investigative work, the Clovis News-Journal reported.
