The Frio County Sheriff’s Office held its ribbon-cutting for the newly reopened county jail on Wednesday morning, November 17, an event heralded by many in attendance as long overdue, as the facility has served only as a 72-hour holding cell for many years since its shut-down by the Texas Commission on Jail Standards. In his first term as chief law enforcement officer for the county, Sheriff Mike Morse has fulfilled a campaign pledge to budget extensive building improvements, upgrades and new technology and ensure the jail passes state inspection. Morse (Photo above with deputies, jailers, administrators and staff) celebrated the reopening by thanking all those who helped the law enforcement agency and the county bring the facility up to scratch. Other speakers likewise acknowledging the effort involved included Chief Deputy Peter Salinas, County Judge Arnulfo Luna, and County Attorney Joseph Sindon. (CURRENT Photo: Marc Robertson)
