Our office will have a booth at this year’s 45th annual east Texas Poultry Festival, taking place this weekend on the downtown Center Square. We will have bracelets, balloon animals and other items available for kids. Stop by and see us and have your picture made with our officers. We will be located next to the stage.
Patrol deputies are continuing security checks at businesses and churches during their shifts. If you notice a red door hanger, this is our way of letting you know that we have stopped by and checked the property. I also want to remind our citizens of our house check program. If you plan on being out of town for a period of time, our deputies can check your property until you return. Stop by our office, fill out a form and we will take care of the rest.
