The New Justice Management Division

The Justice Management Division is a newly created division within the Denton County Sheriff’s Office that will come into effect this summer.  The new division will be commanded by Captain Doug Lee and will be composed of three units including Protective Detail, Bailiffs, and Crisis Intervention Unit.

Protective Detail
These deputies will replace the current security guards at county buildings throughout the county.  Protective Detail Deputies will be in charge of the safety and security of county employees as well as the public using these facilities.  Sheriff Murphree and the Commissioners Court understand the threats to the public in government facilities and believe having trained police officers with specific training in place will make these county facilities more safe and secure.

The Bailiffs are deputies responsible for the safety and security of the judges and courtroom.  The Bailiffs work hand in hand with the judges during court proceedings and will coordinate with the protective detail to ensure the safety of the judge as well as the general public.

Crisis Intervention Unit
This unit is our Mental Health Officers. The primary responsibility is the evaluation of individuals that may be suffering from a mental health crisis.  The Crisis Intervention Unit is specifically trained to deal with mental health issues to ensure the safety of the individual.  The unit works closely with the Probate Court and carries out their orders as it relates to a mental health crisis.

Sheriff Murphree is excited to get this unit started.  The process of hiring and evaluating safety concerns at county facilities is underway.

“This unit will help ensure that our county employees and the public will be safer when using county buildings.”
— Sheriff Murphree
