The increases will take effect Feb. 3, 2023.  According to county leaders, these revisions raise the starting salary for corrections officers to a higher level than any other county in Texas.

“When other governmental entities in our region worked to defund the police, I made a commitment to law enforcement that I would not do that in Williamson County. I am tired of governments not standing behind those who protect us,” said Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell. “We will be using a little funding from our cash reserves, but I can’t think of a better capital investment than to invest in our law enforcement. Thank you for serving the citizens of Williamson County.”

It’s the the largest law enforcement pay increase in the county’s history.
