Red River County Courthouse

Red River County Courthouse

CLARKSVILLE – Red River County Com-missioners voted to amend the Law Enforcement and Procedures policy to include high-pay risk stipends for sheriff’s office employees at a Tuesday morning meeting in the County Courthouse Annex.

Commissioners will fund the increased pay, which amounts to around $250 monthly, for each employee of the department from money earned by housing inmates in the county jail that are from outside the county. There are currently 35 employees in the office, and the sheriff will not get the stipend.
