Sheriff: $4,000 gift will benefit SWAT

The city of Stockton Bend has given a $4,000 gift to the Sheriff’s Office. The money was formally accepted by the Commissioners Court at its regular meeting this week. Sheriff Roger Deeds said previous donations from Stockton Bend purchased a robot for use by the SWAT team, known as the Region IV Special Operations Group. He said the new donation will help purchase shields for the group.
