Networking Reception featuring Republican Milam for Sheriff
My name is Chris Milam’s and I have a vision for the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office which is that of a County Government agency, which strives to be a responsive, cutting edge organization, which will integrate the vision of its citizens, employees and elected officials. As a native Texas son, my lineage dates back nine generations to Benjamin Rush Milam, a man who displayed decisive leadership and gave his life protecting freedom at "The Siege of Bexar" and battle for the Alamo. I strive eveyday to live up to the values instilled into me by my familys heritage for that of Duty, Honor and Leadership. As a Republican Candidate I feel the party’s principles of service, respect, fiscal accountability and last but not least Law & Order are a reflection of its values. I have worked diligently for candidates representing these values in past elections and is proud to be on the Republican ticket in the November 2008 election. Please come to my web site and together we can make a change in Bexar County by volunteering or contributing to the Campaign. Chris Milam Your Candidate for Bexar County Sheriff 2008
On November 4th of 2008 you, a citizen of Bexar County, will have the opportunity to chart a new course for law enforcement when you vote for veteran law officer Christopher J. Milam for Sheriff. A native Texan, whose heritage is service and leadership, Chris has a vision for the safety, protection and respect of all citizens of Bexar County and a plan for building a state of the art law enforcement agency.
The Sheriff is not only the chief law enforcement officer in the county, but also the head of the Sheriff’s Office, a multi-million dollar agency and employer of over 1800 people. Chris’s ability in law enforcement and administration together with his 28 years of experience have uniquely prepared him to lead this agency into a new era of technology, elevated security and partnerships involving local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
Raised in San Antonio, a ninth generation Texan, Chris graduated from John Marshall High School and served in the United States Air Force Security Police. Four years later while working for the Sheriff’s Department he attended Wayland Baptist University from which he received his Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice.
After retiring from the Sheriff’s Office Milam represented the United States as an International Police Senior Law Enforcement Instructor in Bosnia, Kosovo & Serbia. His job was to conduct police training in liaison with the chief law officers of these countries; often this would involve ambassadors, heads of state and even presidents. In 2004 he joined the Texas Attorney General’s Office, at the same time going back to school to secure a Masters Degree in Management. Currently Chris works for the Attorney General’s Office in the Criminal Investigation Division for Money Laundering. As confirmation of his abilities Milam has earned the Master Peace Officer License, the highest law enforcement license issued in Texas.
Family is important to Chris and he is especially proud of his children. His oldest son, Ben Milam has chosen to carry on the family tradition of service to his country as an active duty Marine; Ben is married with two children. Daughter Kymberly, an elementary school teacher, has also found value in her father’s examples; her husband is active duty United States Air Force. Chris is married to Lilly Milam.
As a Republican Milam feels the party’s principles of leadership, honesty, service, respect, fiscal accountability and law & order are a reflection of his own values. He has worked diligently for candidates representing these values in past elections and is proud to be on the Republican ticket in the November 2008 election.

911 Emergency Action Required !!
As your Candidate for Bexar County Sheriff I understand the need for a timely response to a citizen’s call for help on our Bexar County Dispatch ‘911’ lines. I am also uniquely aware of the need to plan for emergencies and keep our dispatch and call centers updated.
On December 31, 2007, New Years Eve, the Bexar County Dispatch ‘911’ Call Center was overwhelmed; 250 citizens attempting to report fires, domestic situations as well as other emergencies could not get help. This crisis occurred primarily because there were not enough personnel on duty to handle the in-coming emergencies.
In this era of automation I feel the personal touch has been sacrificed for efficiency and an effort to cut costs. Automated prompts or messages asking you to "wait for the next dispatcher" are inappropriate at a time when immediate help is required. When I am elected Sheriff of Bexar County I plan to increase staff in dispatch and promote salary incentives so as to attract and keep our qualified personnel. When a citizen calls ‘911’ a concerned, trained person will answer the call and handle your emergency.
Serving the citizens of Bexar County will be the foremost concern in my administration as Sheriff; protection of victims and families will once again be the priority of the Sheriff’s Office.
