Hidalgo County Commissioners' Court approved the acceptance of a donation of K-9 Luke, a labrador mix, from Mr. Billy Smith, Director of the K-9 Program at Jobcorp Facilities in Laredo, Texas, to the Office of Hidalgo County Constable Precinct 1 Celestino Avila.  Luke will be trained in narcotics and will provide K-9 and support and criminal enforcement to the Constable's office and other agencies.  

LOCAL DATA ADVISORY BOARD APPOINTED

Commissioners' Court approved the appointments to the Hidalgo County Local Data Advisory Board, as required by HB 2730, Article 21, which requires counties to maintain the disposition completeness percentage at or above 90% compliance.  Failure to maintain this completeness rate could affect funding allocations to Counties.  The advisory board will review the County's Data Recovery Improvement Plan (DRIP) and determine any action moving forward, including adopting and submission of the DRIP to the Texas DPS.  The County initially appointed a Local Data Advisory Board in 2009, and has maintained compliance with the requirement.  The new appointees will work to ensure that the County continues to remain at the 90% disposition completeness rate.  The appointees are: 
  • Richard Wade, Developer & System Engineer - District Attorney's Office 
  • Lt. Richard Ozuna, Sheriff’s designee 
  • Kelley McCormick, Felony Prosecutor - District Attorney's Office
  • Monica Auger, Misdemeanor Prosecutor - District Attorney's Office
