The Hunt County Sheriff's Office has been helping local districts bear the cost of assigning officers to on-campus duties.

  • In Hunt County, two school districts that have been receiving security services from the county will have those agreements under review. The Boles and Campbell Independent School Districts have contracted with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office to provide law enforcement officers on their campuses. The Greenville Herald Banner reports the contracts are scheduled to be reviewed in Tuesday’s regular meeting of the Hunt County Commissioners Court. The agreements date to August of this year. The cost of providing the officers is an estimated $150,000 per year for each district. The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office has been covering half of that annual cost.
  • In sports, the Texas A&M University-Commerce Lions basketball teams dropped a couple of games on the road over the weekend. The Lion men lost at Abilene Christian on Saturday by a 83-64 score. The Lion women traveled to Starkville, Mississippi, to take on Mississippi State Sunday. The Lions lost 88 to 53. Both teams will take the upcoming week off, for finals week. The teams resume play next Monday.
