Bexar County officials and leaders of the Bexar County Sheriff of Bexar Association will hold their fourth public meeting this week as part of talks to renegotiate a four-year collective agreement that expires on September 30. Ahead of the Bexar County Sheriff`s Office collective agreement, the department is seeking community feedback to make BCSO „a model for prosecutions across the country,“ Sheriff Javier Salazar said in a press release. Law enforcement agencies across the country face similar demands and may come when BCSO prepares to negotiate collective agreements. A link to the existing agreement with the Association of Deputies is on bexar.org/600/Sheriffs-Office. The collective bargaining agendas are published in bexar.org/AgendaCenter as part of the Collective Bargaining Agenda. He sees the renegotiation of the agreement with the MPs` union as another step towards improving the department. Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar called on residents to review the existing 99-side agreement with deputies and send e-mail contributions to CommunityFeedback@bexar.org.

The law enforcement profession is not famous for its ability to respond well to change, but that does not mean that change is not necessary. Previous meetings were held on June 3, June 24 and July 8. Meetings are organized by videoconference to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The next meeting is scheduled for 1 per cent.m. Friday and will also be virtual. The public is encouraged to monitor and monitor online deliberations, but does not have the opportunity to attend meetings unless the basic rules set by the county and the MPs` union permit it. BCSO will begin contract negotiations with the Bexar County Deputy Sheriffs Association in the coming weeks and will include areas such as compensation and benefits, discipline and termination procedures.
