We feel it is important that the members see this video. In our opinion, this video should have been brought to your attention long ago. While we were busy fighting our boss, he was fighting to keep our jobs. For years now we have been fighting the battle over the Downtown Jail with Commissioner Vince Perez who has consistently tried to close the jail and put 280 members out of work. Another jail study is going on right now, wasting tax payer money because all of the others did not produce the results that Commissioner Perez wanted to hear. Its time for this membership to start getting involved with Iliana Holguin's campaign to replace Commissioner Perez, and also time to recognize that contrary to what we've been led to believe, Sheriff Wiles has advocated for us. Watch to see what you were never told.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Officers Association will be walking in memory of Deputy Peter Herrera and Detention Officer Joseph Gomez, along with all the other victims of El Paso crimes. Come out and join us!
