About Kathryn (Kathy) Jo Jividen
I started my Law Enforcement career on August 31, 1982 at the Hood County Sheriff’s Office as a Dispatcher and appointed the first Supervisor for the Dispatch Office in 1985 by Sheriff Edwin Tomlinson and Granbury Police Chief Don Steele. I was on the 9-1-1 Board that brought 9-1-1 to Hood County in 1991.
In 1993 I left the Sheriff’s Office to start my own business, but went back to Hood County as the Chief Court Clerk for Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 & 2 in 1995. By 1997 I was back at the Sheriff’s Office as the Supervisor of the 9-1-1 Communications Center.
In May of 1999, after completing the Weatherford Police Academy, I was assigned as a Juvenile Investigator and Crime Stoppers Coordinator for the Hood County Sheriff’s Office. I was later assigned to the newly formed Narcotics Division for the Hood County Sheriff’s Office.
During my time at the Sheriff’s Office I had many assignments including: Patrol, Patrol Shift Commander, Background Investigations, and Property and Evidence Officer. I left the Sheriff’s Office for DynCorp International in 2005 to perform Backgrounds for the International Police Program commissioned by The State Department.
Incoming Sheriff Roger Deeds asked that I return to the Sheriff’s Office when he started his term in 2009. During the time I worked for Sheriff Deeds I was responsible for the 9-1-1 Communications Center, Crime Stoppers, Wise Eyes, and Neighborhood Watch. This is where I remained until I was appointed to fill the vacated Constable Precinct 3 position in 2015.
My husband James was a plumber in Granbury. He passed away October of 1997. My personal life revolves around my children and grandchildren and with all their sports and different events.
