Cathy Cason Cass County Sheriff
Partner Spotlight ~ Cathy Cason, Inv. Cass County Sheriff's Office
Cathy began her career at Jefferson Police Department in 1995, and a few years later in 1997 Cathy began working for the Marion County Sheriff's Office where she worked until 2005. In 2005, Cathy was hired with the Cass County Sheriff's Office, where she was promoted to Investigator in 2013 and still works today. Cathy is married to Frank Cason, Chief Deputy of Marion County Sheriff's Office, and the two of them have three children together. Cathy is looking forward to retirement in 2023 (she notes this is in 1998 days). Cathy has worked tirelessly over her long career in Law Enforcement, seeing a lot of child abuse cases as an Investigator with CCSO as well as many other types of crimes. We have been incredibly lucky to work with Cathy here at the Texarkana Children's Advocacy Center over the past several years. Cathy is a phenomenal investigator and works very hard to not only protect our children, but to ensure these sensitive cases are worked properly and the perpetrator is apprehended. We have the utmost respect for Cathy, and are thankful to have someone like her working alongside our organization.
