Many deputies who had been under investigation can now return to work. The Office of Inspector General of the Harris County Sheriff's Office has closed 225 complaint cases. Sheriff Adrian Garcia made clearing those cases a priority when he took office in January of 2009. He consolidated the OIG and internal affairs division and added personnel to try to clear the cases.

The OIG cleared three times the number of cases in 2009 than it did in 2008.
