Pacesetter K9 is a Veteran Owned and Operated company known for its high quality service canines.

Deputy K9 Diego Joseph Amaya-May begins his service to the citizens and visitors of Brazos County this month. Constable J.P.

Deputy Drake received numerous commendations for his service, including; four Army Achievement Medals, one Army Commendation Medal, two Good Conduct Medals, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and the Noncommissioned Officers Primary Leadership Course.
