Cameron County Commissioners, Sheriff Garza Reach Courthouse Security Compromise

After months of bickering over who should be in charge of courthouse security, Cameron County commissioners and the sheriff have resolved their dispute. 

Following out-of-court negotiations, the two sides came to a compromise that has the sheriff’s department providing security to the courthouse, with the Commissioners Court in charge of security at other county buildings.

The dispute started shortly after Sheriff Eric Garza took office in January when he terminated an agreement with the Precinct 2 Constable’s Office and put his deputies in charge of courthouse security.

The county sued the sheriff claiming he overstepped his authority. County commissioners formally approved the compromise agreement Tuesday.
