OfficerMat Cox, our Deputy assigned to Acton Middle School as an SRO, had the opportunity to speak to the sixth grade boys today. He spoke about school security and how the students could help keep the school safe by being the eyes and ears of the school. He also spoke to the students about the misdemeanor and felony levels of offenses and explained what the fines and incarceration times could be. Officer Cox had a good time and it seemed like the students enjoyed having him as a guest speaker.
Rest in Peace little angel. Badge 758, we'll take the watch from here.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Abigail Arias, the child who became an officer, a change agent for good and today, an Angel.
Abigail, also known as Officer Arias 758, went to be with our Lord early this morning surrounded by her family and friends.
Her love, compassion, and most importantly, her magnanimous spirit, will live on for generations to come.
It’s both our duty and privilege to embody what Abigail taught us: to live life to the fullest, to never give up hope no matter the odds, to fight “the bad guys” passionately, and most importantly, to love one another - and always Stay Relentless!
I love you Abigail

Kali’s Law goes into effect on September 1, 2019. Texas boat operators will be required to wear an engine cutoff switch when operating a boat equipped with the switch, under 26ft in length and going greater than headway speed.
Headway speed is slow, idle speed, or speed only fast enough to maintain steerage on course.
This change in the law does not require the retrofitting of older boats that were not originally equipped with an engine cutoff switch however Texans are always encouraged to employ sound safety practices which can include the addition of such a safety device.

COUNTERFEIT MONEY ALERT PRESS RELEASE
The Parker County Sheriff’s Office is issuing a public service announcement regarding counterfeit bills circulating in the Parker and Palo Pinto County areas.
Sheriff Larry Fowler said business owners should alert their employees about people attempting to pass counterfeit bills during the course of daily business.
“Residents should also stay alert to the possibility of counterfeit money when conducting business transactions as well,” said Sheriff Fowler.
Some of the bills collected recently include advertising notes that appear to look like $5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 bills. The note(s) clearly state they are for “Motion Picture Purposes,” but employees are not paying close enough attention to the markings. The counterfeit bills otherwise look genuine.
Sheriff’s investigators are currently working with local banking institutions to be aware of counterfeit funds before transactions are made.
“Be aware, those attempting to pass counterfeit bills will frequently use the fake bills at a range of stores and businesses including department stores, convenience stores, specialty stores and gas stations,” said Sheriff Fowler. “Investing in counterfeit detection markers would be a wise decision. They are inexpensive and may be an effective tool in loss prevention.”
