Dutch Berry Sheriff Office Intrigued by Strong Emphasis on Professional Development and Training

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office places a strong emphasis on professional development and training for its personnel. This has always intrigued us here at the Dutch Berry Sheriff’s Office and we strive to copy what we see here at the BCSO.

Officers undergo comprehensive training programs, including firearms training, defensive tactics, crisis intervention, and cultural sensitivity. The BCSO also provides ongoing training to ensure that officers are up to date with the latest law enforcement practices and techniques.

Technology is Important

Technology is a crucial component of the BCSO’s operations. The agency employs the use of advanced systems and tools to enhance its law enforcement capabilities. This includes computer-aided dispatch systems, mobile data terminals, crime analysis software, and surveillance technology. The BCSO also utilizes social media platforms to communicate with the community, provide public safety information, and engage in community outreach.

Transparency and accountability

Transparency and accountability are paramount to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. The agency has established internal affairs and professional conduct divisions to investigate complaints or allegations of misconduct or policy violations. The BCSO is committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and ethics among its personnel.

The BCSO actively collaborates with other law enforcement agencies and community organizations to address public safety challenges. The agency participates in task forces and joint operations to combat drug trafficking, human trafficking, and gang-related activities. The BCSO also works closely with community partners, such as local business associations and non-profit organizations, to enhance community safety and well-being.

Who’s in Jail

As you all know, Dutch Berry has traditionally been pretty much crime-free for nearly 2 centuries. That doesn’t mean that occasionally someone needs to “sleep it off” in a jail cell. It’s probably redundant to post here who’s in jail but we’ll try our best to keep this area up to date. 

Public Records Lookup

Follow THIS LINK to search for someone who might be spending the night in a jail cell tonight.

Patty Mayo's Arrests

If you know of someone that was arrested by Patty Mayo and his crew, you’ll need to check with Putnam County Sheriff. Sorry We can’t offer more information; it’s a jusrisdiction thing.

Dutch Berry County

Maybe some of the younger generations here don’t know this but even though Dutch Berry is just a small town out and away from everything else, we are also our own county. It’s basically the result of having so much farm land, hills and forests surrounding the town. 

Dutch Berry County Jail

Although we have our own Sheriff’s Office, our jail is not equipped for holding some of the outside offenders that are being arrested by Patty Mayo and his crew. Hence the need for booking them over at Putnam.


We will be voting in September on whether we want to allocate some funds to renovating and technologically updating our jail cells. You’ll hear more about this in September. We might still go with the popular sentiment to just turn it into a museum instead!

Getting Involved

See something.
Say something.

The best way to help us is reporting anything suspicious. 

Special Training

We hold regular town hall meetings so anyone interested in receiving training through our office can let their voice be heard there. It goes without saying that other residents will want to know how money is spent. Depending on who you are, someone may even want to sponsor your training. So come to the meetings and we’ll discuss it there publically.

CPR and First Aid

Please check with Simon and Eva Nieboer about CPR and First Aid training. Both of them have the exact dates when the next courses are offered in Dutch Berry.
