With the 14 years of employment I have with the Constable's office at Precinct 1, I have the knowledge of both the clerical and deputy areas of the office. I began my career at the Constable's office as a clerk. While in this position, I enrolled into the Cedar Valley Law Enforcement Academy, graduating in January 2005. In April 2005, I was afforded the opportunity to become a Deputy Constable within the same office. I have worked in the Civil, Warrant, Truancy, Bailiff and Writ divisions. Currently I supervise the Training division and daily operations of the deputies. My passion, commitment, accountability, knowledge, proven leadership and management skills, equip me to handle the challenges of the Constable's role.
The procedures used by Dallas County Constables shouldn't be changed. I will, however, as the Constable of Precinct 4 educate the community of the procedures utilized and the importance of the office.
The issues of training and community inclusion are pressing for the Constable's office. Under my leadership, training for both deputy and clerical staffs will become priority. The law enforcement community is always changing and training is a vital key to educating and ensuring qualified employees continue to represent Constable Precinct 4. I will also address the issue of the diversity of Precinct 4 by implementing programs focused on Emotional Intelligence and relational importance. I believe in building effective working relationships, first within the Constable's office then the Precinct 4 community.
