TCSOA President Jacob Bentura was raised in Buda, Texas. After graduating from Jack C. Hays high school, he began his career at the Travis County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) in 2001. He began as a security coordinator at TCJ before being promoted to corrections officer. Jacob worked at Del Valle being assigned to Building 4 and ISD Security. While assigned to ISD, Jacob attended the TCSO Basic Peace Officer Course and was sworn in as a deputy in 2006. In January 2009, Jacob moved to his first tour in Prisoner Transportation before spending nearly four years at the Hospital Visitation Unit. Due to his love and passion for Prisoner Transportation, Jacob returned to Transportation in 2017, where he is currently assigned. Along with achieving numerous awards from TCSO, he currently holds a Master Jailers license.
During his 21 years, Deputy Bentura has been a Field Training officer in each of the sections he’s worked in. His tenure as a Field Training Officer totals to sixteen years. His passion for Prisoner Transportation and teaching others the duties of a Transportation officer has led him to being a two-time FTO in the section. He also assists the TCSO Training Academy with teaching the COBRA cadets about Prisoner Transportation. Throughout his career, Bentura has been a proven leader.
Jacob has been involved with the TCSO Honor Guard, where he was a part of the first competition team that TCSO sent to compete at the Honor Guard competition in Washington DC, during the National Peace Officers Week. He also spent five seasons, competing on the gridiron with the Central Texas Wolfpack, First Responders Semi Pro football team.

Jacob has also helped with community service events with his church as well as the Wounded Warrior Project. Jacob’s other passion is coaching little league baseball in Menchaca. He hopes to inspire the young men that he coaches to love and respect the game as much as he does.

My name is Audrey Segura. I've been with TCSO since April 2012 as a security coordinator with TCJ. Moved to Central Booking as a coordinator. For 10 years, booking has been my home until I was promoted to Officer on March 2021 and my new home is now building 12. I have been a board member with TCSOA for over 8 years and now I am Treasurer.

My name is Anthony Fernandez. I am currently "Place 3" on the TCSOA Board of Directors. I was born In Austin, Tx. I moved from Austin in 1983 and have lived in many places, including overseas as a military dependent. I have lived in California, Alaska, England, and Japan. I moved back to Austin, TX in 1999.
In September of 2008, I started my TCSO career as a Security Coordinator downtown at TCJ and then transferred to Del Valle HSB control room the same year. With much motivation provided by my peers and various coworkers, I was promoted to Corrections Officer in 2010. I began my tenure as an officer in Building 12, and four years later I transferred to Central Booking where I am currently assigned. After several years of being assigned at Central Booking, I submitted my name to participate in the FTO selection process. I succeeded in my goal of becoming a part of the leadership team and am now an FTO on A-Shift. I have been with Travis County for over 14 years. In those 14 years, I’ve been through many trials to which I learned great lessons.
On a personal note, a little bit about myself. I enjoy spending time with my wife, children, and other family members. I love fishing. I also enjoy watching football. Yes, I am a Cowboys fan! I tend to stay busy in my free time working on my land and truck…..it’s also my place of peace.
