Butts appoints King as chief deputy

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Bandera County Sheriff Dan Butts has appointed Matthew King as his chief deputy. A Bandera County resident, King has over 30 years of experience as a peace officer.
For the last eight years, he served as chief deputy with the Kendall County Sheriff's Office and, under Sheriff James McMillan, was chief deputy for the BCSO for almost 10 years prior to that.
"I am confident that Chief King has the experience, education and training to help implement our policies as we move the sheriff's office forward," said Butts. "Chief King shares my vision for the sheriff's office and will be a very valuable member of our leadership team."
For his part, King noted, "I'm very glad to be back in my home county. I share the beliefs of Sheriff Butts and am pleased to be associated with him. We want to restore the citizens' trust in the sheriff's office and offer professional law enforcement to Bandera County. We have a lot of good people working at the sheriff's office and I look forward to working with them."
