Forty years of constant use and outdated systems in the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office evidence/property room prompted then newly-elected County Sheriff Troy Nehls to task Lt. David Clary with bringing it up to modern standards.

Renovations have not only brought it up to code, but also significantly improved its efficiency and safety. The efficiencies not only have improved law enforcement but it has saved local tax dollars.

In recognition, the Texas Association of Counties (TAC) has given a 2018 County Best Practices Award to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office for its evidence/property room modernization.

The process of research, planning and execution took a little over a year. “The effects were immediately apparent,” said Maj. Chad Norvell of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.

“The improvements, along with proper evidence destruction, have increased usable space by 25 percent, allows for faster and more accurate evidence retrieval and created a safer environment for employees.”
Enhancements include new security gates, barcode scanners, Wi-Fi and mobile laptops, LED lighting, epoxy flooring, dust-free shelving and new organizational signage.

“I’m encouraged by the concerted effort of Fort Bend County’s officials and staff to invest the time and resources necessary to improve their law enforcement division and run an efficient organization,” said TAC Executive Director Gene Terry.

Fort Bend County was one of eight Texas counties selected to receive a TAC 2018 County Best Practices Award.

The biennial program recognizes the efforts of county leaders in implementing innovative, scalable and replicable solutions to challenges facing local government throughout Texas.

Areas of focus include financial and general management, public safety and corrections, health and human services, technology, community improvements and other county-related responsibilities.

TAC unites, supports and provides services to Texas counties so they can more effectively serve their local communities.

“I want to thank TAC for this great recognition. We are devoted to continue making efforts that will better the Sheriff’s Office and serve our community,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls.
