The Harris County Sheriff's Office is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year and you can take a look back at the history of the agency.

Sheriff Adrian Garcia Monday helped open a photo exhibit at the Houston Public Library Central Branch in downtown Houston. The exhibit includes photos of former Harris County sheriffs and the early years of the office.

One guest who enjoyed the exhibit is Deputy Douglas Hudson, who is serving in his 48th year with HCSO.

"The sheriff's department has come a long way. The history and the management of the department has come, the technology has grown, and trying to keep the streets safer for the citizens of Harris County," Dep. Hudson said.

The free photo exhibit will be on display through the middle of July.
