SHERIFF CAPERS APPOINTED TO ASSOCIATION BOARD
San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas at their 140th Annual Training Conference held in Grapevine, July 21-24, 2018.
More than 1,500 participants were in attendance at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center where they heard outstanding speakers, had opportunities for significant and timely training sessions
and visited more than 240 exhibits each showcasing some of the latest technology law enforcement has to offer.
Sheriff Capers has been the Sheriff of San Jacinto County since November 2014. He distinguishes himself in his county and throughout the State of Texas as he assumes this leadership role within the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas.
The Sheriffs’ Association of Texas is one of the oldest law enforcement associations in the nation. The Sheriffs of Texas met for the first time on August 14, 1874, just four years after San Jacinto County came into existence. They met in the courthouse in Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas where Sheriff Sul Ross of McLennan County called the meeting to order and later became a notable part of Texas history.
The Sheriffs of Texas began annual training at these conferences just a mere four years later in 1878. These training conferences today are the largest composite gathering of law enforcement officers in Texas. Sheriffs and other county and local law enforcement officers, both federal and state officers along with security personnel attend. In addition to the annual training conferences, the Association conducts training throughout the year for law enforcement officers. The Sheriffs’ Association of Texas serves as a liaison with federal, state, county and municipal agencies and associations to promote cooperation, training, education and more efficient services to the citizens of this great State of Texas.
