Alex Villalobos for Hays County Sheriff

As Sheriff, I will seek to modernize our department — from ensuring our frontline deputies and civilian employees possess the equipment and training that enables them to successfully engage with a diverse population — but also through renovating policies that reduce both arrests and our unreasonably large jail population. I believe the principles of integrity, impartiality, modernization and dignified interactions with our community are critical pillars for our department’s success, and I look forward to the opportunity of guiding our Sheriff’s Office into a promising new era.
