Sheriff: Security stepped up locally in wake of murders

Sheriff Roger Deeds and Deputy Chief Biff Temple confirmed Tuesday morning that Hood County is among several other counties in Texas providing increased security for prosecuting attorneys in the wake of the recent murders of the district attorney and one of his assistants in Kaufman County.

“Yes, we have increased some levels of security with the district attorney (Rob Christian), the county attorney (Lori Kaspar) and the assistants,” Temple said. “The security unit at the Justice Center, as you would think, their level of awareness has been heightened.
