A Day in the Life- BCSO Deputy Michelle Carrier

ByAllyson Pebsworth
Staff Reporter

After being able to sit in with the Central Records and Communications center in Texarkana, I started wondering what things were like for the officers being sent out to the emergency calls. Well thanks to the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office, I had the opportunity to ride along with one of our very own BCSO deputies, Michelle Carrier, and let me tell you it was quite the eye opening experience. Thankfully there were no car chases, robberies, or shootings, but I did witness a drug arrest where a K-9 unit had to be called in to locate the drugs on an individual that refused a consent to search. As an outsider stepping into a shift, even what seem like the most mundane traffic stops can be interesting.
