During this difficult and trying time, the Hood County Sheriff’s Office would like to make a few things known and clear to the general public...

First and foremost, although we have adopted a “Shelter in Place” order, officers are not out to stop every person who is out and about. We expect that the general public is obliging with the current order and are only leaving for necessities.

However, we strongly advise that all residents do remain home and shelter in place when at all possible. Shelter-in-Place orders are being issued now because it is urgent that we slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 in Hood county.

The virus spreads easily, and these guidelines are intended to prevent the spread of this disease from overwhelming our healthcare system. The goal here is to “flatten the curve”- or to slow down - the spread of the virus and ensure we have adequate health care resources for those who get sick with COVID-19 and those who need emergency medical care for accidents, heart attacks, strokes, and other routine medical conditions.

We advise that you only leave your house as completely necessary, in order to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We ask that all residents of Hood County take this seriously, and do your due diligence in keeping the county safe from the spread of this virus.

*************************YOU CAN*************************

*Go to the grocery, convenience or warehouse store

*Go to the pharmacy to pick up medications and other
healthcare necessities

*Go to medical appointments (check with your doctor or
provider first).

*Go to a restaurant for take-out, delivery or drive-thru

*Care for or support a friend or family member

*Take a walk, ride your bike, hike, jog and be in nature for
exercise — just keep at least six feet between you and
others in the community

*Walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian if necessary

*Help someone to get necessary supplies

*Go to work for an essential business.

*************************YOU SHOULD NOT*************************

*Go to work unless you are providing essential services as
defined by the guidelines. (Note: work arrangements should
be made in consultation with your employer. Alternative work
arrangements are recommended where possible.)

*Visit friends and family if there is no urgent need
Maintain less than 6 feet of distance from others when you
go out

*Visit loved ones in the hospital, nursing home, skilled nursing
facility, or other residential care facility

Secondly, we at the Hood County Sheriff’s Office are absolutely in support of your second amendment rights as citizens. The Sheriff and the HCSO wants to assure everyone that their rights are intact, and each citizen maintains the right to bear arms and protect themselves. We will absolutely uphold, defend, and support the right for our citizens to bear arms.

It has come to our attention that people are being contacted through text message (although other avenues are possible) by someone posing as a pastor, with some people even naming themselves as being the pastor of a local church. These people are asking for money or gift cards to be purchased and sent to the person posing as a pastor.

Please be aware that if you are contacted by anyone requesting money, no matter who they claim to be, it is vital that you be vigilant and not exchange monies with any person or organization that you are not completely certain is legitimate.

Sheriff Roger Deeds letter to citizens of Hood County

I am proud to announce that I have been reelected for my fourth term as the Hood County Sheriff. I want to thank all my supporters and everyone that prayed for me and all my employees at the Sheriff’s Office. It has been quite the experience and I’m glad it’s over.

To all the people who attacked the Sheriff’s Office and me, during the election process: I would ask you to reconsider doing this in the future elections. Are we not a country of freedom? We all have a right to say or believe or support any person or cause without being persecuted. So why are we so quick to attack one another? Just because you don’t agree with my opinion or belief.

I am always trying to make the Hood County Sheriff’s Office a better place. A lot of good ideas came out of this process and will be utilized during my tenure.

I will continue to work hard as your Sheriff and will not take your support lightly. I look forward in serving you in the coming years and if you need something, please contact me.

God bless Hood County and God Bless America.

Respectfully, Your Sheriff Roger Deeds

On February 19th, 2020, as part of a joint law enforcement effort between the Hood County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Marshal Service, an operation was conducted to ensure the compliance of the 169 registered sex offenders within Hood County. The Hood County Deputies and the State Marshals were broken into multiple teams in order to cover the most ground possible.

These teams then went door-to-door, and through their efforts were able to verify whether or not all the registered offenders within Hood County were in fact up-to-date and in compliance with the Texas Department of Public Safety’s requirements. During this operation, only 1 out of the 169 registered offenders was found to be in violation.

Sex offenders are required under Megan’s Law to register in the city and county where they reside, as well as adhere to strict guidelines after being convicted. Megan's Law also requires the State Police to create and maintain a registry of persons who reside, work, or attend school in the Commonwealth, and who have either been convicted of, entered a plea of guilty to, or adjudicated delinquent of certain sexual offenses.

The Adam Walsh Act, which was passed by Congress in 2006, (otherwise known as the Adam Walsh Residency Enforcement Act), has created a more comprehensive, nationwide system to track sex offenders. In furtherance of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, the United States Marshals Service assists jurisdictions in locating and apprehending sex offenders who fail to comply with their sex offender registration requirements.

While compliance checks have always been a standard procedure throughout the physical year, this specific operation comprised of a verification of 100% of the registered offenders who are required to report to the Hood County Sheriff’s office.

Information about registered sexual offenders is available to the public through the Texas Department of Public Safety’s website at records.txdps.state.tx.us, as well as by logging onto kidslivesafe.com. If you suspect that an offender listed on the Texas Department of Public Safety’s website is in violation of the law, or that any information on the website is out-dated or incorrect, please contact the Hood County Sheriff’s Office at 817-579-3310.
