Building upon the nation’s call to return to the principles that our country was founded upon, the Patriots of Gillespie County will sponsor a seminar for peace officers entitled, "The Constitution for Peace Officers". Former sheriff Richard Mack will facilitate the seminar that is planned for February 9, 2010 and is open to all law enforcement. Peace officers will meet at the CTEC Conference Hall, 386 Friendship Lane, Fredericksburg, Texas. Two, 4-hour sessions are available; 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
The President of the Sheriff’s Association of Texas, Thomas Kerss, will join representatives from at lease seven Texas counties and other law enforcement offices to hear and discuss the powers granted to the sheriff’s department. According to Richard Mack’s book, The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope, the county sheriff is the last line of defense against the encroachment of the Federal government.
Former sheriff Richard Mack, who is the author of the curriculum, will bring the Constitution back from obscurity and emphasize its importance to all law enforcement. Sheriff Mack is a tireless crusader for the Bill of rights and is best know for winning the Supreme Court decision that stated that the Federal government may not compel states to enact or enforce a Federal regulatory program. Sheriff Mack has served in a wide variety of roles over the course of his nearly twenty year career in law enforcement. The many awards he has received include the NRA Law Officer of the Year; induction into the NRA Hall of Fame; received the 1995 Cicero Award, the Samuel Adams Leadership Award from the Local Sovereignty Coalition, and Gun Owners of America Defender of the Second Amendment Award.
