Humble 0,000 Police

Humble 0,000 Police ..what Chief it won’t Delbert get you. Dawes retires after 33 years Retirement. A word which encompasses the culmination of years of ups, downs, laughter and tears, coupled with all of our hopes and dreams. Especially in this career of ours.

Then there are those we meet whom we’d be better people if we fulfilled our aspirations to be more like them. To be caring, compassionate, sincere and loyal unto those whom serve with them, not “under” them. Chief Delbert Daws was and shall always be the latter to me and to many others throughout the State of Texas.
