Texas sheriffs visit state capital
More than 120 sheriffs and other law enforcement officers from around the state that visited the 84th Legislature on Wednesday. The sheriffs traveled from near and far in an effort to express their interest in what legislative actions are taken, show their support of lawmakers and exhibit a strong unity among the sheriffs of Texas.
The Legislative Committee and staff of the Sheriffs' Association of Texas coordinated this special event to facilitate the sheriffs' involvement in the legislative process. Resolutions were passed in both the House and Senate recognizing the sheriffs and SAT. Sheriffs spent the remainder of the day meeting with their individual senators and representatives to discuss pending legislation and provide input on bills that affect the citizens of the state. The Sheriffs feel this contact is crucial to providing meaningful law enforcement in their counties.
