“These men, whom I under no circumstances satisfied before that now infamous push convention, stepped up to enable our Bexar County Sheriff’s Basis (BCSF) with equipment to enable safeguard our group. They can not be held responsible for comments created by nameless folks on Jarred’s particular website page. Jarred didn’t say everything incorrect. BRCC did not say anything incorrect. Whilst Jarred and I definitely agree the language is rather darn offensive, there is continue to a Initially Modification,” Salazar wrote.
Salazar reiterated that he isn’t really offering up on his program to get a buy a boat for BCSO.
“To make clear, I’m likely back again to court docket with the boat item at some position, but my intent is to go back again with a plan that won’t price tag taxpayers. Though Choose Wolff supplied in his letter, I really don’t intend to check with for any dollars for the boat, devices, instruction, storage, servicing, anything. And we’re using present deputies and reserve deputies, not inquiring for far more personnel. This is why the BCSF was developed, together with other individuals like it produced by other Legislation Enforcement businesses throughout the state. LE foundations are to purchase machines for businesses that really don’t want or can not burden taxpayers with. We have by now employed ours to buy K9 vests and products for our Honor Guard, Mounted Patrol, and Pipe and Drums Corps. In the close to long run, we’ll be working with it to equip our younger BCSO Explorers as they start off discovering about their long run job. I also program to create a Tactical Medic software, to support our deputies help you save far more life on the streets. Continue to be tuned.”
