Law enforcement center to honor Taylor

Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 06/29/06http://news.galvestondailynews.com/story.lasso?ewcd=6d282ad9ec0754b1 County officials are inviting the public to a dedication ceremony this afternoon for the island’s new law enforcement center. The facility, at 700 54th St. in Galveston, will bear the name of Joe Max Taylor, who was sheriff of Galveston County for 20 years until his retirement in 2000. The center opened last month and is the new home to both the Galveston Police Department and the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office. Taylor also said he was honored, but said people should not expect to see him regularly. “You start going up there all the time … people start thinking you’re trying to run things,” he said, laughing. “I’m just happy to spend time with my wife and my family, my grandchildren.” Taylor credited his family’s support and the work of doctors at the University of Texas Medical Branch with his recovery from a massive heart attack in January. “I’ve been so fortunate to have these people around me,” he said.
