The Williamson County Sheriff's Office has two deputies specifically assigned to livestock issues around the county.
Deputy Joe Worsham
Deputy Johnathan Kidwell
The Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the loose livestock in the County. These deputies respond to loose livestock complaints. They work to get the animal off the roadway and secured behind fences. Once that is done they investigate where the animal came from so they can return the animal to the proper owner and if need be issue citations. Once in a while they find loose livestock that nobody will claim. In these cases they house them and prepare them for auction. They are trained in animal cruelty investigation involving both domesticated and livestock animals. Cattle theft is still a modern day problem in Texas. These deputies investigate and prepare for prosecution cases related to cattle theft.
