in Government

In an impressive legal triumph, the Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) secured $780,000 in back pay for 13 deputies who were unjustly terminated from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department (OCSD). This landmark decision came as a result of persistent legal efforts led by TMPA regional attorney Gregory Cagle, particularly in the wake of the 2020 Orange County Sheriff election fallout.

A recent statement from the TMPA shed light on the circumstances that led to this significant outcome. “The affected deputies faced unjust terminations and reassignments under Sheriff Jimmy Mooney, which led to grievances under the Orange County collective bargaining agreement. Despite legal challenges from Orange County, TMPA’s unwavering commitment to justice and the welfare of its members succeeded, ensuring the deputies received their due compensation,” the association reported.

This victory not only underscores TMPA’s commitment to the well-being of its members but also highlights the importance of unity and strong legal protections for law enforcement officers. TMPA Executive Director Kevin Lawrence emphasized the impact of this achievement, stating, “This achievement highlights the critical role of unity and robust legal protection for our officers. We are committed to vigorously defending our members’ rights.”

The successful resolution of this case reaffirms TMPA’s dedication to advocating for the rights and welfare of law enforcement personnel throughout Texas. With a focus on providing unparalleled legal support and professional services, TMPA continues to stand as a staunch defender of its members’ rights, ensuring justice and fair treatment for law enforcement officers across the state.
