Commissioners approve new vehicle for Lamar Co. Sheriffs

LAMAR COUNTY, TX - Lamar County Commissioners approved the purchase of a new vehicle for the Sheriff's Office Monday morning.

Sheriff Cass asked the county for $60,000 to purchase a vehicle and new equipment.

Cass says they make around 400 transportation trips a year, but do not have a specialized vehicle for those with mental health needs.

The funds will be used to purchase a van specifically for transporting mental health needs personnel as well as a camera system in the jail.
