Damon Allen Act

Office of the Governor Greg Abbott  A husband and father, DPS Highway Patrol Trooper Damon Allen was ambushed, shot and killed on Thanksgiving Day in 2017 while doing his duty and protecting the citizens of Texas. His killer was out on bond. From his wife's testimony: That day "we had Thanksgiving lunch together as a family. As a trooper you don't get holidays off... criminals don't take holidays off. I kissed Damon goodbye... He passed by the kids' rooms to give them hugs. He then left for work. He never came home." His killer was out on a $15,000 bond despite having previously been convicted for a charge arising from assaulting a public servant and having been arrested on charges of evading arrest and aggravated assault on a public servant. Thank you to Senator Joan Huffman, Representatives Kyle Kacal, Andrew Murr, and Reggie Smith, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, and House Speaker Dade Phelan for your leadership on the Damon Allen Act, which will reform our broken bail system in Texas & keep our communities safe. https://bit.ly/3t753Sq #DamonAllenAct

Farm Trustee Inmates haul square bale hay

This morning, as part of the NCSO inmate (trustee) work program, we introduced our (farm trustee) inmates to the almost forgotten profession of hauling square bale hay. I have always felt it important to help educate these inmates in various roles of ranching and other professions. Therefore, we use inmate labor when possible to encourage and help them to utilize and apply any skills learned while incarcerated, toward employment once released. We are putting up the square hay to support our estray livestock program throughout the year.   Sheriff Elmer Tanner
