Licking police officers swear in as Texas County reserve deputies


Licking police officers swear in as Texas County reserve deputies

Submitted by Chief Pat Burton,

Licking Police Department

On May 29, Licking Police Department officers took part in swearing in as reserve deputies for the Texas County Sheriff’s Department. Other area police departments, including Houston Police Department and Cabool Police Department, also had their officers sworn in.
The Licking Police Department will continue the existing department policy in reference to mutual aid calls for service. With our officers being commissioned as reserve deputies, it enables the officers to continue investigations, stemming from within the city limits of Licking, outside the city limits, without involving other agencies. We are also able to respond to certain types of calls to assist other area agencies, when needed, outside the city limits of Licking.
This arrangement has shown to be very beneficial to all area law enforcement agencies in the past and I believe it will continue to be in the future.
