Bexar Sheriff Wants More Young People to Choose Police Careers

By Don Morgan

One of the challenges facing new Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar is getting more young people interested in a career in law enforcement.

The Sheriff talked to KTSA’s Trey Ware about it Friday morning. He says that current attitudes towards law enforcement officers have a lot of parents steering their children away from that line of work.

But he’s hoping efforts to let young people know how rewarding law enforcement can be will help change minds.

“We’re doing things with, like the Explorers different ways of connecting with the community. We’re trying to attract kids because you’ve got to have the right kind of people.”

The Sheriff stopped by our Military Appreciation Breakfast this morning to say thanks to Bexar County residents who serve the country.
