It’s January 2018 and time to hear from your constable, Mitchell Clark. This publication from me to you on behalf of the Texas Shoreline News will be published every quarter unless something needs to be reported. For current news from your constable or to learn more about me and my office, you can visit us on Facebook at Nueces County Constable Precinct 2 and at my website, constablemitchellclark.net. This site has many informative features to it such as “Listen to the Constable” and my publications on various topics.
I thought this might a good time for a year-end report. During the holidays, I reflected on how much we accomplished in 2017. I remembered all the things we have done for the constable’s office that will help us serve you better. We upgraded our computer system, met the State-mandated continuing education for all peace officers and firearms qualifications, purchased new equipment for my officers which helps keep them safe, bought new uniforms and bulletproof vests, and launched my two new programs: Talk with the Constable and Walk with the Constable.
I am proud that the new equipment, uniforms, and vests did not cost the taxpayers a penny. I secured this money from grants and from donations to my department. Most importantly, none of this would have happened without the hard work of my officers and administrative staff.
One of the changes I made in 2017 was to engage in community policing. As an example, to the extent possible, my officers spend time in the neighborhoods patrolling your homes to help keep you safe. After the hurricane, I suspended paper service and focused my officers in your neighborhoods and businesses to keep an extra eye on you and your property. And yes, even the “ole Constable” was out on the streets on patrol. (Some say that “cop” actually means “constable on patrol.”)
Finally, I have designed and completed the Pct. 2 Wall of Honor. This is a dedication to all the elected Constables who have served this district from its very beginnings in 1952 through today. It will be officially dedicated January 23, 2018, at 10:30 a.m. at my offices located at 10110 Compton Road in Flour Bluff. Come on by and take a look at history or come to the dedication. The cost of this project was paid for through donations and didn’t cost the taxpayers one cent.
Happy New Year to all, and I look forward to serving as your Constable in 2018.
Always there for you!
Constable Mitchell Clark
