"Four of our officers have volunteered to head out, and they are headed to Webster, Texas right now which is between Galveston, one of the hardest hit areas, and Houston," says Capt. Gale Bowyer Decatur County Sheriff's Office.

Captain Bowyer is one of the four men now on standby. He says their packed and ready to go as soon as they get the call.  They are going to work with security operations and could be gone for ten days or more, depending on the need. Feedback
