Bill Waybourn

Tarrant County Sheriff

Educational Subject: Border and Drug Crisis

Updates on Border Crisis and Abuse of the Synthetic Opioid, Fentanyl

Bill began his career in service when he joined the U.S. Air Force in 1978, serving in both the active duty and reserves. On April 30, 1981, after serving active duty, Bill began working for Dalworthington Gardens Police Department. Bill was promoted to Chief of Police on June 1, 1984, making him the youngest police chief in the State of Texas.

During Bill’s first term as Sheriff, he has created a Human Trafficking Unit, a Department of Intelligence, aggressive inmate service programs, several less than lethal programs, and numerous other training initiatives.  Both Intelligence and Human Trafficking have gained state and national prominence by being on the tip of the spear.

As law enforcement officers, it is our sworn duty to protect and serve our communities as well as to uphold and enforce the laws of our country and of our great State. We take that responsibility seriously. It is a high calling.

REPORTS AND UPDATES

Carlos Turcios

Young Conservative Activist

 FWISD Update

Issues Concerning Parents & Families

My parents came here in the 80s and 90s to seek the American dream. They worked as teens to help provide for their families’ basic needs. My mother came to the U.S. in 1992 from Ciudad Juarez. My father fled the civil war in 1986 from El Salvador. I am extremely fortunate to have been raised by strong, hard working parents. They taught me to always value and appreciate the freedom and opportunities provided in our country.
