After nearly 60 years on the force, Cameron County sheriff turns in badge
After nearly 60 years serving on the force, Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio turns in his badge.
On a Saturday night in Harlingen, 58 years ago, Lucio began his career in law enforcement.
"I came in at 11:00 o'clock— well 10:30 and reported to the office," Lucio said. "They said, 'here's a key and there's a car.' I said 'OK and do I have a partner?' They said 'you are it.'"
He wanted a different experience than the one he had for his team.
From matching weapons to uniforms, Lucio has had a hand in every upgrade made within a department that had only five police cars and a history of corruption when he took command.
