Prayers for the Huffman Family

I can’t begin to tell you what a tremendous loss this is for our community.

Mr. Huffman was not only a very valuable part of our community but an avid supporter of law enforcement and a valued friend to myself and the members of the NCSO.

From all of us here at the NSCO, our thoughts and many prayers go out to the Huffman family.

You will be missed my friend. May you Rest In Peace.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner

                    

Moving Forward

Evolution continues as today we finished a necessary upgrade to our departmental firing range.

We have constructed a 12’ by 30’ shooting station for our rifle range. Thank you to Deputies Brad Steele, Jim Carroll, Charles Paul and project manager Stan Farmer. The above mentioned along with inmate labor completed the structure with the only outside vendor being a concrete contractor.

We saved thousands of dollars by doing the project in house instead of using contract labor.

The NCSO firing range is used by numerous law enforcement agencies both inside and outside Navarro County.

Public Service Announcement

Public Service Announcement:

I have become aware of criminals across the state (via list-serve) that are "conducting business" under the auspice that they are affiliated with local counties or clerks offices.

In Ellis County, it was reported that they have hacked into the phone system so that the number shows up as a county number. The Ellis County Sheriff has already addressed the issue. I have not received any reports in Navarro County at this time.

The scammers are claiming to be process servers and telling citizens that they are to pay $xx.xx amount over the phone or they will be arrested or a warrant will be issued. The courts in Navarro County do not ask or accept payment over the phone (unless pre-arranged) and anyone involved in litigation is not required to pay for process service except for services requested/rendered, the filing of a civil or family suit or otherwise ordered by a Judge through a signed order or judgment.

Dont become a victim to these scams. Always verify the validity of the information before sending payment.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner

SCAM ALERT!

Public Service Announcement:

I have become aware of another new scam. The attached document had been sent to some of our Navarro County residents. 
This form had been declared a scam and as always you should use diligence in researching the validity of a form before rendering payment.
