We would like to introduce to you those who are members of the Midland County Sheriff’s Office.
We are proud to begin this series with Sergeant Edelmira “Ede” Subia, who was recently promoted as our Community Relations Sergeant.
“Hello, my name is Edelmira Subia. I go by Ede for obvious reasons. I am a wife, mother of three, and a grandmother of two. I am also a member of Mid-Cities Church.
I have spent the last seventeen years of my life in law enforcement. Most of my career has been with the Midland County Sheriff’s Office. I started in the jail and worked my way up to corporal. After leaving the jail, I assisted and worked closely with the late Sgt. Mike Naylor in Mental Health. I then joined the Warrants Division and was one of the founding members of the Midland County Hostage Negotiations Team for SWAT. I was also one of the original members of the US Marshal’s Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.
I have spent the last eight years working in all aspects of criminal investigations, including both person’s and property crimes. I have received extensive training in law enforcement and hold a Master Peace Officer Certificate. In 2007, I was the first female in the State of Texas to be awarded the Law Enforcement Officer of the Year/Greg McFarlin-Max Banks Award by the Texas Sheriff’s Association. I also was honored to receive the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Lifesaving Award.
I am excited about my new position, as it will allow us to bring both the Midland County Sheriff’s Office and the wonderful Midland County community closer together. “
