Thank you for posting that. I though perhaps they got a grant for that because I know of an agency near me that did get a Violence Against Women Act grant. I didn't see any mention in the article about a grant, though. I also didn't see any mention of the sheriff's office. In many areas warrants are there thing, but maybe it is very different in Texas.
