Associate member funding allows the Sheriff's Association of Texas to provide critical training, technical resources, and legislative support on key criminal issues to law enforcement across the state.
I am a long time member of the Sheriff's Association of Texas and the association has my full support. The membership mailer that you may receive from the Sheriff's Association of Texas is not a scam. I am posting a sample copy of the mailer to our social media page and will also be sending it to the local media.
It is important that you understand that then money from the membership drive does not go directly to the Navarro County Sheriff's. If you decide to participate and join you will become an associate member of the Sheriff's Association of Texas. The mailer will clearly explain how the Sheriff's Association of Texas Intends to used the membership fees.

I am writing you because I believe you are a law-abiding citizen who has worked hard for what you have. I also believe you are tired of people who turn to crime as an easy way to make a living with little responsibility to society.
Almost every day you and I see or hear about the violence and crime committed by crooks, thieves, rapists, drug pushers, and murderers. There are also many crimes in out communities that are non-violent -- committed by individuals struggling with both substance abuse and mental illness. Unfortunately, during tough economic times like these, criminal activities become even more prevalent. Tax dollars to fight them only go so far, and these dollars are shrinking every day. The Sheriffs of Texas want to be smart on crime, see more meaningful prison sentences, provide better training for officers justice system; but we need your help.
