Sheriff Charles Wagner recognized for service

With great honor, Brazoria County Commissioners’ Court recognized Sheriff Charles S. Wagner for his 50 years of dedication to law enforcement and Brazoria County.  Sheriff Wagner’s career began on August 11, 1967 in Freeport Texas. He left Freeport when offered the Chief Deputy position at the Brazoria County Sheriff’s office on July 15, 1985. It was on January 1, 2005, Charles Wagner was sworn in as Sheriff of Brazoria County.

As a child, Charles dreamed of becoming Sheriff of Brazoria County. Fifty years later, Sheriff Wagner has fulfilled that dream with an outstanding and distinguished service record to the county he grew up in, and the county he loves. 

Sheriff Wagner has been the recipient of many awards during his career, but in 2010 he received the highest of tributes received by a Sheriff, the Tom Tellepsen Award.  This award recognizes outstanding contributions to the advancement of law enforcement and criminal justice and honors more than ability and performance. It recognizes one’s ability to demonstrate the human element that engraves their name in the hearts of all the law enforcement community, and shows a genuine love of the profession. This award is given at the Annual Banquet of the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas Training Conference.

The Resolution during Commissioners’ Court on August 22, 2017 was presented to Sheriff Charles Wagner recognizing his 50 years of dedication to law enforcement and continued commitment to the citizens of Brazoria County.
