SAN ANTONIO - Security guards were hired to patrol the Bexar County Sheriff's Office new substation because deputies are concerned about the protection of their vehicles.
This adds to the ongoing list complaints about the new substation location on Farm Road and Southton. Deputies have complained about the mud when it rains and having to park their vehicles and units in the trenches.
Security guards are now patrolling around the substation because there's only portable lighting and deputies were concerned about vandals.
Bexar County Sheriff Spokesperson Louis Antu said, “We have hired a security company to patrol out in the evenings to make sure their vehicles are safe.”
Commissioner Kevin Wolff says he understands deputies concerns and says improvements are in the works. Wolff explained how the county will spend nearly half a million dollars to fix up the substation and improve parking.
“We are spending the money and moving as quickly as possible to make a bad situation better,” Wolff said.
