Bexar County Sheriff's Office

Seven veteran Bexar County Sheriff’s Deputies have been placed on administrative leave for ten days following a hazing ritual involving one of the deputies.  During the incident, county issued handcuffs, county issued shackles, and a county issued taser were used.  All of the deputies are members of SERT, the Special Emergency Response Team at the Jail.

They were all given letters on Monday notifying them of the leave that is due to them as part of their collective bargaining agreement, according to Sheriff Javier Salazar.
