Happy New Year


As the end of year draws near, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for an amazing year. The continued success of Kleberg County Sheriff's Office is based on the relationships we have built over the years, and we really wouldn't be where we are today without the dedication and hard work from the officers, dispatcher and civilian staff.

This year has been filled with a multitude of both challenges and victories. Every year is different, but this one has been filled with more change than normal. It has been reassuring to see how our deputies have risen to overcome every roadblock, while always looking out for the safety and security of the citizens of Kleberg County.

No matter how the pandemic has affected our daily lives, we have persevered together as a team and came out stronger. Often, we find our greatest successes in the most surprising places. We are sure it has been the same for you.

As the end of year approaches, we know there will be many challenges ahead. However, we are so excited what 2021 may have in store for us - enthusiasm and anticipation in building new partnerships and opportunities.

So, please join me in welcoming in the new year by sending inspiring messages to your loved ones to mark this special time of year. And given how challenging 2020 has been for us all with COVD-19, it feels especially important to express our hopes and dreams for better days ahead in 2021.

Wishing you and your families health, happiness and prosperity in the new year.
