Grayson Co. Sheriff's Office changing patrol positions

By  | 

GRAYSON COUNTY, TEXAS -- The Grayson County Sheriff's Office is adding a fourth patrol shift and they say it's going to save them money.

The shifts will change from 10 hours to 12 hours and will eliminate corporal positions.

Instead, each shift will have four sergeants, meaning there will be more patrolman working each shift.

Lt. Mark Hudson says, not only will this save the county about $1,300 dollars each year, it will also give officers better schedules.

"They have more personnel on the street, but also get the benefit of having more time off on weekends," Hudson said.

The Sheriff's office got commissioners' approval this morning at Commissioner's Court.

Hudson says this is just the first step in putting this new patrol plan in full force.
