Sheriff Garcia holds town hall meeting

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia held a town hall meeting Saturday to hear from the people he serves in the Katy area. About a hundred people attended Saturday morning's meeting. The most common questions were how to deal with issues like illegal parking and graffiti, since unincorporated parts of the county aren't covered by Houston city ordinances.

Sheriff Garcia said he was pleased so many people would come in on a Saturday.

"This helps me know that there are people I can coordinate with, work with, give information to make them quasi-deputies, citizen deputies, in the process of keeping Harris County safe," said Sheriff Garcia.

The sheriff also talked about juvenile crime, and his employees handed out flyers and personal information kits.

"I think principally the concern that I heard and resonated with me the most, is that people want to make sure that they have deputies ready to respond to their calls to service that we have the necessary resources to deal with the calls that come up," said Sheriff Garcia.

This is Sheriff Garcia's second town hall since taking office in January.
