Quite interesting. I am curious about the Hudspeth County deal; Texas law requires even those elected to law enforcement positions (sheriffs, constables) to complete a state-certified police academy course within a year of their election. A Texas law enforcement officer must have a license from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Ethics to have police powers. Honorary deputies, which is what the Hudspeth County deal sounds like, do not have police powers and are not allowed to carry a handgun without a state-issued license to carry, the same as a private citizen. Reserve officers have police privileges only when they are on duty.
