Sheriff Patterson is proud to announce the opening of an office located within the Liberty County Courthouse Annex in Dayton on F.M. 1960. Thanks to the cooperation and assistance of Constable Pafford, Justice of the Peace Graves, Tax Assessor Mark McClellan and County Judge McNair the Sheriff’s Office was able to secure an office which is equipped with a desk, telephone, computer and printer which will allow Deputies assigned to the Dayton area to remain in the Dayton area for longer periods of time.
Deputies will now be able to simply go to the Dayton Annex and meet with citizens, complete reports and make necessary phone calls for follow up investigations in the Dayton area. Additionally, having this office will prevent Deputies from having travel to the main station in Liberty just to complete reports and make any report related phone calls. Also, this office will help reduce any extended response times to emergency calls in the Dayton area as Deputies can respond from the Dayton Annex in lieu of having to respond from the main station in Liberty.
While the office isn’t “manned” twenty-four hours a day, it is accessible to Patrol Deputies and Investigators day and night, which will reduce travel time and fuel costs by allowing Sheriff’s Office personnel to have access to the telephone, computer and printer in Dayton, thus completing reports and conducting Investigations all while maximizing time and efficiency.
Sheriff Patterson and the members of the Sheriff’s Office want to thank everyone who participated in making the opening this office possible. This office will be a tremendous asset to the Department and serves as a reflection of the dedication which citizens and law enforcement have here in Liberty County for working together to provide a safer community for everyone.
