CCSO’s Community Resource Team Receives Award from Texas Crime Prevention Association
Comal County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) Community Resource Team on Tuesday presented Sheriff Mark Reynolds with the 2020 Most Outstanding Crime Prevention Unit in a Medium Agency award from the Texas Crime Prevention Association (TCPA).
It’s the second year in a row that CCSO been recognized by the TCPA, the largest and oldest crime-prevention group in the nation. The award was formally announced at the group’s annual meeting in College Station on July 14. CCSO Sgt. Ricardo Cardenas accepted the plaque on behalf of the team.
Jakob Willmann, who serves on the resource team, said law-enforcement units throughout the state are nominated annually for the award, which recognizes crime-prevention work at the community level.
CCSO this year was singled out for its annual Junior Deputy Academy, National Night Out events, VIN Etch Clinics, Child ID Clinics, Prescription Drug Take Back Days, and Neighborhood Watch Program.
“We try to do three of everything that we do because the community’s spread out,” Willmann said.
Events are routinely scheduled in Canyon Lake, Bulverde and New Braunfels.
The Community Resource Team also provides resource officers for Comal ISD and conducts Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) programs in schools.
