Sheriff Troy Nehls
Sheriff Troy Nehls
Jan. 4, 2013

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office is kicking off the new year with a clean slate - literally.

On Thursday and Friday, every employee of the Sheriff's Office met with Sheriff Troy Nehls and his new Command Staff members at the Gus George Law Enforcement Academy. After receiving new credentials, each employee took a drug test as well.

"We wanted to come in and start with a clean slate," Nehls said. "This is not a challenge to anyone's professionalism; it's a message that the expectations and the professionalism levels have been raised at the Sheriff's Office."

Nehls was first in line Thursday to take the drug test, followed by each member of his Command Staff.

The Sheriff said taxpayers should not worry about the cost of the procedure because the tests were paid for through seized drug funds. No tax dollars were used.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office has 732 employees.

Good for him. Every druggy cop or cop who shows his/her butt wearing a badge reflects on us all. Big thumbs up for the new sheriff

This is excellent standard to set! Excellent idea.

That's how you gain respect. Good job Sheriff Nehis. With this kind of attitude, the good people of your county will work well with you.
God Bless America, especially Fort Bend County Texas.

I'm sure Galveston County's new sheriff will do the same thing after giving those closest to him a courtesy notice.

Did they test only for illegal drugs or also for steroids? The latter is the far bigger problem in law enforcement.

While I was sheriff, we drug tested each new employee and had unannounced drug screening on a regular basis
I am waiting the results of the polygraph exams of his new staff. I doubt that will happen sense he fired the polygraph chief

Good for him!
