CAMERON COUNTY — It was a decisive win for Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio on Tuesday night as he had more votes than his two challengers combined and will face Republican candidate Santiago Manrrique in November. We caught up with the sheriff who shared a little insight into his future plans if he is elected back into office, "First off I want to keep a close check on the violence across in Mexico. We have for the past eight years and we've kept a nice, safe and tranquil community. One of probably the safest counties in the State of Texas, are safe and secure."
Other areas of focus are installing GPS systems in patrol units, increasing the salaries of sheriff deputies, detention guards and expanding the Carrizales Rucker Detention facility.
