Sheriff Glynn White


Glynn White worked in the Kerrville area before beginning his law enforcement career as a Deputy Sheriff in Kerr County in 1964.  He thrived as a Kerr County Deputy Sheriff, became a Certified Peace Officer of the State of Texas, and was highly respected.  He was known for his dedication to law enforcement, dependability, and honesty.  Opportunity knocked and these qualities led him to leave the Kerr County Sheriff Department and be sworn in as Chief Deputy Sheriff for Kendall County Sheriff Lee D'Spain on January 1, 1973. When Sheriff D'Spain resigned White was appointed sheriff by a unanimous vote of the Kendall County Commissioners Court on July 6, 1979.  Sheriff White was to serve until the upcoming November 1980 general election.  White decided to run, and his opponent was former sheriff Lee D'Spain.  D'Spain won the election by 203 votes.  Leaving Boerne in early 1981, Glynn and his family moved to Luling, Caldwell, Texas where he found work with an oil field company.   A short time later, Caldwell County Sheriff Elvin Hotchin's learned of Glynn's law enforcement reputation and made him Deputy Sheriff.  He served Caldwell County for many years, eventually became Sheriff Hotchin's, Chief Deputy.
