It should be understood that as Brazoria County grows, so will its need for more people to provide crucial services to its more than 370,000 residents.

Law enforcement is one of the areas residents would consider most important when officials are deciding how to divvy tax dollars, and while not as high profile as officers on the street, dispatchers are a pivotal piece in ensuring public safety. Making sure the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office has enough people to handle the thousands of additional calls coming in each month should be a priority for protecting the public.
