Jasper County Chief's Report

By Chief Deputy Scott Duncan

December 4, 2023

It was a busy week in Jasper County the past week. Dispatch had a continuous stream of calls coming in and deputies were working hard answering them.

The Sheriff had his game camera stolen

this past week. The thief has continuously taken photos of himself since the theft, and we are working to identify him. We would appreciate this individual bringing the camera to the Sheriff’s Office and having a chat with us.

We responded to several mental health calls this week. This time

of year can bring on many stresses, and we just want everyone to

be safe and seek proper care. We are thankful for Spindletop

and their partnership in providing these critical services.

Saturday, we responded to an individual who was having a mental

health crisis and during the incident he fired shots at the

responding deputy. We then had a several hour standoff with the

individual which ultimately ended in him being transported to

the hospital for mental health services. Charges are pending at

this time as we investigate the incident. I want to commend my

team and also Kirbyville PD and DPS for their assistance.

Today is the last day for Blue Santa applications, so please get

those turned in. We are still accepting donations and look

forward to another successful year of giving gifts to those in


We have 139 in the jail this morning. If you need us, call!
