Week 2 at the FBI National Academy is complete! Chief Reyes sent us this update: "We continued to build a strong global network. The academic portion of the program is master’s level classes focused on officer wellness (physical, emotional, spiritual) and learning to recognize the impact of working in a stressful environment. PT continues almost daily and I take great pride in sharing information about all the awesome initiatives TCSO has taken over the last 3 years and the massive amount of support TCSO gets from the community."

BLUE ISIS THE FACE OF TERRORISM SINCE 9/11, COPS NEED TO LOSE THEIR QUALIFIED IMMUNITY, THEN SUED AND FIRED, THEN GET COPS THAT WILL UPHOLD THEIR OATH TO THE CONSTITUTION Does this department hire these tyrants or is it taught in THEIR dept to do this Cops protect corporations not the public Blue lives don't matter!

We were informed at the end of December that our life insurance was being terminated by Dearborne National. I retired on disability after 20 years with the sheriff's dept. I took the life insurance that was offered and have paid for it for the past five years. Because I retire on disability it makes it difficult to find a life insurance plan I can afford. I don't understand why the county is not taking care of it's employs. I look at this page and see all the awards that are being handed out and I am glad those who deserve them are being recognized. I have to ask what good will that recommendation do them when they retire. Thank you for reading my post.
No update on the man who hung himself in the Mansfield City Jail last week?

Hundreds of people were at the Tarrant County Appraisal District on October 15, 2019, that did not receive their Protest Notice. Every person was denied the opportunity to Protest the Value of their property because the Board in essence called each of us liars. The Tarrant Appraisal District’s position is they gave the Notices to the United States Postal Service and there for the Notices were delivered. Hundreds of Notices were somehow lost by the USPS? Hundreds of Notices were supposedly mailed by the Tarrant County Appraisal District and not received. The Tarrant County Appraisal District representative, under oath, testified that the Notices were given to and signed for by a United States Postal Service Employee. Did the Tarrant County Appraisal District representative lie? Or, did someone at the United States Postal Service steal the Notices? Either way, it seems to me a matter that should be investigated. Do we have a mail fraud situation? Should Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan investigate? Each of these Tarrant County citizens will be paying higher property taxes because they did not receive their Notices and were therefore denied the opportunity to protest. The citizens of Tarrant County are being cheated.
It was great to see and visit with Deputy Martinez and Preacher while patrolling our neighborhood today!
Got you a fine Sheriff eh? How long before he steps down!
Hypocrisy does not look good on you Sheriff Bill Waybourn,clean your own house first
