Former narcotics officer gets to patrol streets one more time through ‘Silver Dreams’ program

A 30-year veteran police officer had a “Silver Dream” granted Friday, thanks to Sulphur Springs Health and Rehab and Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office.

Five years ago, Dallas police narcotics officer Jerry Sinor was severely injured while responding to a drug-related burglary. The assault caused lasting damage,  ending Sinor’s 30 year career as a Dallas police officer.

Sinor is currently a resident at Sulphur Springs Health and Rehab, where he indicated during his entrance interview and conversations with staff a desire to return to law enforcement.

SSHR staff contacted officials at Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office, who agreed to help make Sinor’s dream a reality if only for a short while. HCSO Lt. Henry Turner and Sgt. Victor Cosme presented Sinor with a certificate naming him an honorary deputy, took him for a short patrol around town in a sheriff’s patrol vehicle and stopped to get a roast beef sandwich before returning home.

Sinor is the third person SSHR, through community partnerships, has helped see a “silver dream” come true. Silver Dreams was started to help residents in some small way attain what previously seemed like an unattainable or unlikely dream, usually one near and dear to them or a lifelong goal they were never able to realize.
