From: Sheriff Greg Taylor

   It has truly been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve as your Sheriff these past 14 years. With Careful consideration and prayer I have decided to retire at the end of my 4th term ending 12/31/2020.

    I’m so grateful to God, my family, my staff and the wonderful people of Anderson County who have been by my side supporting me, and praying for me and encouraging me all these years. The job of a Texas Sheriff is a very demanding job and can only be accomplished successfully with support from the hard working men and women who have worked for me carrying out all the duties of the office with pride and professionalism.

    To all who have and do work for me, again I say thank you.  I will continue to serve as your Sheriff for the next 2 years and we will continue to work hard to serve and protect the citizens of Anderson County to the best of our ability. I vow to leave the Sheriff’s Office in much better condition than when I first was elected. I will work with the new Sheriff (whomever that may be) to insure a smooth transition so not to interrupt the great service we provide. I look forward to more time serving at my church, spending more time with my wife and family, travelling around this beautiful country, fishing with my grandson and playing a little golf. The race for Sheriff in the next election will be an interesting one with several candidates vying for the position. I will put my full support and endorsement behind my current CID/Patrol Captain, Ginger Lively.

    Captain Lively has worked for me for the past 7 years, starting as a patrol deputy, then promoting to CID sergeant investigator and then promoting to CID/Patrol Captain. Prior to working at the Sheriff’s Office Captain Lively worked for TDCJ-ID for many years promoting to Regional Grievance Coordinator. Captain Lively is a hard working dedicated employee. She has impressed me with her drive, professionalism and leadership abilities and has a true heart for all victims of crime. I truly believe that Captain Lively would be a Sheriff Anderson County would truly be proud of. Again I say Thank you to all and God Bless.

Anderson County Sheriff,

Greg Taylor
