El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Clint Station renamed to honor Deputy Herrera

Earlier this week, County Commissioner Carlos Leon hosted an unveiling ceremony for the renaming and dedication of the Clint Station to our fallen Deputy Peter J. Herrera. 

Deputy Herrera was killed during a traffic stop in San Elizario in March of 2019.  Thousands turned out for his procession – which made its way by his Clint duty station – and the subsequent mass and burial.

Along with the dedication Commissioner Leon unveiled Deputy Herrera’s monument.

The event followed a Resolution issued by Commissioners Court on Monday, November 18, 2019, recognizing the life and service of Deputy Peter John Herrera.
