AG Accepts Request From DA Regarding Chief of Police Justin Collins

August 18, 2017

GRAND SALINE--This week, the Texas Attorney General's Criminal Investigations Division accepted my request for assistance regarding the allegations surrounding the Grand Saline Police Department and Chief Justin Collins. The AG's office was officially appointed as the District Attorney Pro Tem in this matter yesterday and will be handling all facets of the investigation and any subsequent prosecution, should one be required. You may recall that my intention was to remove myself and the Van Zandt DA's Office from this matter due to the potential conflict of interest. If the AG Office wants to share any public information or developments in this case with me, I'll continue with updates.
