Today is a hard day. It’s a hard day for all of us in the EPCSOA. It’s an even harder day for Deputy Herrera’s family left behind. We lost our hero 2 years ago today. We honored you today and ensured that your memory will carry on long after we’re gone. Thank you for serving and protecting our community. Rest in paradise Deputy Peter J. Herrera #4928. End of Watch March 24th 2019.
The EPCSOA assisted CIS Coordinator Gabriela Gallegos and Ricardo Estrada Middle School by purchasing a freezer to be used for the school and community.
Thank you so much for your generous donation to Communities in Schools for Ricardo Estrada Middle School.
With your help, we will be able to provide food assistance to our families in the community who are in need of this type of support. Families will be able to come in and shop around in our mini-market and grab not only food, but also items such as toiletries, diapers, wipes and much more.
This project will also help students who are in need of volunteer hours for school and will provide them with the opportunity to learn how to conduct an intake, sharpen up their customer service skills, and become comfortable working in a collaborative environment.
Deputy Omar Gonzalez and the El Paso County Sheriff's Officers Association, as you can see, your contribution is very important to our most important people, the community we serve. It’s important to me, too. Your ongoing commitment to our kids and families truly means the world, and we really couldn’t have done this without you, thank you truly for making this vision a reality!
Ricardo Estrada M.S.
Our Hero Deputy Peter J. Herrera will never be forgotten. Thank you Commissioners Court and a special thank you to Commissioner Iliana Holguin for your support on this item.
We took on the machine and won. I will fight for our membership with all I have. We went local and national media and all of the sudden got our page back! We look forward to being able to keep our members and our community informed. Thank you for all of your support!
I tried to think of something we could do from the EPCSOA as a permanent reminder and way to honor Detention Officer Joseph Gomez who was taken from us by a drunk driver. I reached out to City Representatives Henry Rivera and Cassandra Hernandez who immediately jumped in and helped. Now there is a permanent sign at the crash sight in memory of Joseph. Thanks to everyone that worked so hard to make this happen.
A message to you all from the great Commissioner Carl Robinson! Thank you for always standing up for the men and women that wear the badge proudly!!
We’ve all been waiting for this day for a long time. Thank you to the members that took the time to help with the campaign, took time away from their families to block walk and support Commissioner Iliana Holguin. These changes don’t just happen on their own. Commissioner Holguin had her first meeting today and we could not be happier. All we want is a seat at the table and to be heard. Congratulations Ma’am!
I would like to take a minute to thank Sheriff Wiles for supporting the hard working men and women of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and the role he played in helping fight for us to receive pandemic pay.
