LAS CRUCES - Thousands of mourners filled the Pan American Center on the campus of New Mexico State University on Sunday for a funeral service for Officer José Ismael Chavez, the Hatch police officer killed on Aug. 12 in the line of duty.Law enforcement officers from coast to coast — coming from as far away as New York, Chicago and San Diego — paid their final respects to the fallen officer.A funeral procession, which began Sunday morning in Hatch, reportedly spanned 11 miles as it made its way south on Interstate 25 toward Las Cruces. The hearse carrying Chavez’s body was greeted by more than 100 American flags held by members of the Patriot Guard Riders from Las Cruces, Albuquerque, Ruidoso, Roswell, Alamogordo and El Paso, an organization whose members attend funerals of members of the U.S. military, firefighters and police officers at the invitation of the decedent’s family.The hearse traveled beneath two Garrison Flags hoisted above Arrowhead Drive as it approached the Pan America...
