Sheriff David Warren announced today that veteran Deputy Angie Collier has been promoted to the position of Criminal Investigator, a sergeant level position. Deputy Collier replaces Tim Blount who recently took a job in the private sector.
"I am very pleased that Deputy Collier has agreed to accept the Criminal Investigator's position. That particular position is likely the most challenging and time consuming job in the Sheriff's Office, but I know Angie is very capable and will do her absolute best," said Sheriff Warren.
Warren went on to explain that Eli Cunningham, another experienced Deputy, will step up to assume the Civil Process Deputy and DARE Deputy duties that have been performed by Collier.
"I am confident that Deputy Cunningham will do an excellent job at keeping both of those functions running very smoothly," said Warren. Deputy Cunningham also serves as a weapons trainer and firearms proficiency officer.
"I want to emphasize that I intend to keep the DARE program going in Roscoe, Highland and Blackwell schools just as we have for the past 15 years."
Finally Jailer Daniel King has been assigned as a Patrol Deputy and will be assuming those duties immediately.
"Daniel King came to us from Taylor County and he already had his Texas Peace Officer's license. Daniel has done a superb job in the jail for the last year and a half and I'm sure he will make a really fine Deputy," stated the Sheriff.
