Among the Lubbock men and women getting called to active duty are almost a dozen city and county employees, and the numbers could grow. On Monday, the city reported that seven people handed in their active duty papers. Five of them are police officers.
At the county, more than a dozen employees could potentially be called. But so far, only two county employees, a jailer and correctional officer, have been called to active duty. Jailer and reservist Jaime Rodriguez says there's a slim chance he'll be called. "I called my unit to be sure. I'm not on the list. Unfortunately," he said.
The city has a total of 38 active reservists and the county has at least 12 that could be called to active duty.
