I have my advanced peace officer certification, as well as many hours of civil process training. I have experience in courtroom security, and am one of the most experienced Deputies serving civil papers. At this time I am one of 2 Deputies that serve all writs for the Sheriff’s Office. I also have experience in selling off real estate from a drug seizure and an apartment complex from a judgement.
The Constable is a state certified Peace Officer and is responsible for serving all Justice Court civil process and providing bailiff duties for the JP Court. Among his primary duties a Constable is responsible for keeping accounts of the financial transactions of the office and is responsible for property seized or money collected by court order.
There is a problem with the fact that the community does not know that the Constables Office is another law enforcement resource just like the Police Department and Sheriff’s Office. I will improve community relations by patrolling my precinct and being available to the community as well as listening to their concerns. There is also a large amount of unserved warrants that I would like to get alleviated.

I have 26+ years working in public services as a pastor/associate pastor (10 years) and a Law Enforcement officer and business owner (15 years). I have 2000+ hours of law enforcement training and hold an Advanced Peace Officer License. Through these year I have assisted individuals and families through many crisis situations.
The most important duties of a Constable are to enforce the law both criminal and civil within the scope of the Justice Precinct. These duties include, but are not limited to serving civil process and subpoenas within own county and enforcing criminal law throughout the state of Texas as well as traffic enforcement.
The most pressing problems that a constable faces is enforcing the law in the context of civil process that involves notification to citizens of an impending law suite, divorce, eviction, etc. How I handle these situations is by making the recipients are as informed as possible, exhibit compassion and fairness, but with a firm adherence to the law.
