Ozuna started his law enforcement career at the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office, where he worked his way from detention officer to captain

After he retired in 2016, Ozuna became the Sullivan City police chief.

Before Ozuna took the job, Sullivan City had trouble keeping a police chief.

Two of his predecessors were arrested on corruption charges. Ozuna rebuilt the department, re-established relationships with other law enforcement agencies and developed a strong connection with the community.

Ozuna is set to start in Alamo on March 16.
