I was elected to the office of constable on November 2, 2010, in the general election for an unexpired term. I have over 27 years in law enforcement experience and spent approximately 18 of those years serving civil process for Hood County.

I began my law enforcement career in Dickens County, Texas, in 1981 for the Dickens County sheriff’s office as a jailer. Later in the year, I was appointed deputy and in 1982 went to the law enforcement academy in Lubbock, Texas. I was employed by the Spur Police Department and later returned to sheriff’s office in Dickens.

In 1985, I moved our family to Hood County, where I began working for the Hood County sheriff’s office as a patrol officer. In 1987, I was able to transfer to the Civil and Warrants Department, where I began to learn civil process. May 1992 was a time that will always be memorable, as I was appointed sheriff of Hood County to serve the unexpired term of a retiring sheriff.

I continued my employment with the Hood County sheriff’s office until October 1993, when I decided to leave my position to run a campaign for justice of the peace, where I was unsuccessful.

In 1997, the newly elected sheriff hired me back with the Hood County sheriff’s office, and I was appointed captain of the Civil and Warrants Department. I was employed with the Sheriff’s Department until I resigned after being elected to the office of constable in November 2010.
