(AUSTIN) — While I continue in my optimism that Harris County officials will take a reasonable approach to resolve their law enforcement budgeting issue for the citizens of Harris County, I am extremely disappointed in the ongoing legal maneuvering used to justify their budgeting decisions.
I am, however, pleased that the county has freely acknowledged in this legal filing that they reduced the budget for law enforcement. The first step toward recovery is admitting you have a problem. I am hopeful that this admission by the county leads to the resolution that has always been available to them: Fully fund the Harris County Constables.
