Area law enforcement personnel were recognized by Texas County citizens in an event Tuesday at the county Justice Center.

As officers from six agencies stood in front of a crowd gathered in courtroom A, Associate Circuit Judge Doug Gaston spoke about the high value of the contribution the officers make to society. 

“We want all of you to know how much we appreciate what you do, and that we love you for it,” Gaston said. “We know you’ve got our backs and we want you to know we’ve got yours, too.”

Attending were representatives of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Texas County Sheriff’s Department, Missouri Department of Conservation, and police departments from Houston, Licking and Cabool.
