How would you feel if you were in danger but there weren't enough deputies to get to you in the time you needed? Our Red River County deputies are leaving because they are not getting a fair wage. Would you put your life on the line every day for $13 an hour? No and they shouldn't either.
I started this petition because I am infuriated that our deputies are not getting a fair shake. The police officers in Clarksville and Bogata both make more than a Red River County deputy. Our Sheriff's Office covers almost the whole county and should be paid equal if not more!
Please sign this petition so we can demand a fair wage for our deputies. Our deputies deserve better. Without having a competent Sheriff's Office, we are vulnerable to more crime being committed against us, our families, and our businesses.
