Terrell County Sheriff's Office News

For Red Ribbon Week, the Terrell County Sheriff's Office provided pizza for lunch for all TCISD students and staff along with a small token of appreciation for all students for being such a great group of kids.

Today Terrell County Sheriffs Deputies, Terrell County Fire, Terrell County EMS, Terrell County JPs, Texas DPS, and US Border Patrol participated in Shattered Dreams for TCISD Jr High and High School students "Shattered Dreams" is an educational experience that shows us of the dangers associated with drinking and driving. It reminds us that too many young lives have already been lost and countless others severely impaired because of the tragic consequences of underage drinking combined with driving. It's about living and dying. "Shattered Dreams" can make a difference in a young person's life. Families, schools, faith-based and community groups in Waco must join together to teach young people that consuming alcohol while underage is never a good choice. Can our communities afford to ignore the devastating impact that underage drinking is causing? Thanks the TCISD for allowing this program to take place, and Thanks to U.S.B.P Agent Fernando Sanchez for all your work in putting this together Sheriff Keith Hughes
