The Central Command provides law enforcement support county-wide. We answer the 9-1-1 phones and dispatch emergency law enforcement services to unincorporated Travis County as well as provide crisis intervention, major crimes investigations and victim services that result from those calls. We provide security for the Combined Transportation and Emergency Communication Center.
The Central Command conducts pro-active investigations into narcotics, gambling, and other quality-of-life issues and maintains a full-time Tactical Unit, equipped and trained to respond to any emergency in Central Texas. We are considered a regional asset.
The Central Command also investigates financial crimes, child abuse and family violence. We register and monitor the sex-offenders for unincorporated Travis County and actively seek fugitives from justice. We keep the sheriff's deputies armed with the finest technology available and oversee the on-the-job training for all of the new patrol deputies.
