LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Tuesday afternoon the Department of Family and Protective Services held a salute to law enforcement luncheon.
It's something CPS does every year to show their appreciation for all the different entities that help them do their job and are dedicated to the protection of children.
CPS special investigator Tony Jasso says it's like a big family when they all do a job together and have a common goal.
Jasso said, "Its very important that we maintain good rapport not only with law enforcement, but the courthouse and the judges and Harold's House, anyone who assists us in performing our job."
Jasso says the lunch is two-fold because it's an appreciation lunch but also a way to build camaraderie so that all the different state entities that are involved in keeping children safe know each other.
