Sheriff Tommy Gage Issues Appeal to Citizens in Fight Against Crime
CONROE- Responding to the increased number of citizens wanting to assist law enforcement officials and build a stronger partnership in the fight against crime, Sheriff Tommy Gage today announced that Montgomery County Citizens are being invited to become Associate Members of the Sheriff’s Association of Texas.
Membership invitations will go out in the mail over the next several weeks. Associate Member funding allows the Sheriff’s Association of Texas to provide critical training, technical resources, and legislative support on key criminal justice issues to law enforcement officers across the state.
In addition, dues will be used to support crime prevention and awareness programs, promote public safety, fight drug abuse, provide additional training for sheriff’s and their deputies, and provide scholarships for children of law enforcement officers.
Contributions to Sheriffs’ Association of Texas are tax-deductible.
“The Association Membership Drive helps provide the funding which is vital to our mission of making our communities safer places to live, work and play,” said Sheriff Gage.
The Associate Membership Program was created to provide citizens with an opportunity to lend their support to more effective law enforcement and to better help local Sheriffs protect the lives and property of citizens.
“During these economic times, the need for building stronger public-private law enforcement partnerships continues to escalate, and programs such as this continue to grow in importance,” said Sheriff Gage. “I encourage every citizen receiving a membership appeal to consider joining forces with us by becoming an Associate Member. It is a valuable investment in our future.”
