SAN JACINTO COUNTY — A trio of deputies with the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office moved into new positions earlier this month.Tim Kean was promoted to chief deputy to replace Dan Todd, who retired after a 35-year career in law enforcement, including the last five with the SJCSO.

Sergeant Larry Pohlmeyer was promoted to lieutenant of the detective division — the same position Kean held prior to his promotion — and Charles Dougherty moved to patrol from the criminal investigation division.“It’s going from a piece of the pie to the whole pie,” Kean said of his promotion. “I never had a big aspiration to do that. It just worked out that way through the years.”

Pohlmeyer, a 35-year law enforcement veteran, has been with the SJCSO for three years. He was previously with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office for 32 years.

“It’s a fresh drink of water to be here (in San Jacinto County),” Pohlmeyer said.Dougherty has been with the SJSCO for two years and in law enforcement for seven. He’s split his time between patrol and CID.

“There’s a good group of guys here and I’ve had the pleasure of working with all the shifts,” Dougherty said. “It’s a little different environment when I went back from CID. I’m back here on patrol and it’s good to be back working with these guys. They’re good guys. We have a lot of good plans and ideas that we’re going to try to bring forward and hopefully have a successful future for this county, this department and this agency.”

Kean also has plans for SJCSO moving forward.“We’re going to try to bring a much better service here for the people who live in this county and make do the best we can with what we have because we don’t have a very large budget,” he said. “We’re going to squeeze every bit we can out of every dollar.”
