Suicidal subject taken into custody without incident


I am very proud to report this afternoon that thanks to the combined efforts of numerous law enforcement agencies, Corsicana Fire Rescue personnel and equipment, the suicidal suspect in the 5500 block of FM 744 was taken into custody without incident today.

Thanks to the combined agency efforts of the NCSO along with their crisis negotiations unit, Texas DPS, Texas Game Warden, Dawson PD and CFD personnel we were able to peacefully negotiate and safely resolve this suicidal person situation.

I want to say how much I appreciate and thank you all for your professionalism and dedication to duty which is always key in helping to resolve a critical incident such as this.
