Hopeful, I guarantee it isn't because of the "superiors" as you have mentioned It is the PAY!! You can drive 20-30 minutes to Karnes county and get paid about $5,000-8,000 more per year to be a deputy there. This is because the oil companies have given LOTS AND LOTS of money to the county. Which could be a conflict because are the deputies suppose to enforce laws to these companies or let them pass because of the money that they are pumping into the county? You can drive 30 minutes to Bexar and be and be a deputy there for about $10,000-15,000 more per year. SAPD well that is at least $20,000 more per year.

As I have stated before, the deputies we have here get the job done and are here because of loyalty to the Sheriff.

I have to agree that those that have dirt on some of the superiors is ridiculous. I know of one particular employee at the office that she will NEVER be fired or let go because of what she has on a certain "superior." She has violated so many policies and recently was caught in a major one yet she is still head of her department. Family friends, well who isn't family friends in this town? That doesn't necessarily have an impact as does the previously mentioned situation.

The officers we have get the job done and do it well for what they have as far as resources and pay.

One thing I have figured out is there is no use putting calluses on my fingers to prove a point, it all boils down to how hard is Sheriff going to fight for his employees (which has been proven, not very hard) and will the commissioner's ever acknowledge the deputies, jailers, and dispatchers dedication and loyalty to this county, communities, and citizens.
