The Standards and Compliance Division within the Operations Command is tasked with ensuring all personnel and office operations conform to the Standards of Accountability established by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE), the Standards and Practices of the Police Profession and all applicable County, State and Federal Laws governing hiring, retention and termination. They oversee OSHA compliance and are the first stop in the Grievance Process.
The Standards and Compliance Division is assigned to the Operations Command and is responsible for processing applicants seeking employment with our office. This includes all levels of testing, background investigation, and departmental orientation. Every effort is made to acquire and carefully screen the best candidates for employment at Precinct 2.
They are the self-policing element of the office, tasked with investigating allegations of police misconduct.
To maintain the public confidence, all complaints must be thoroughly and impartially investigated. To that end, Internal Affairs was reformed by Constable Garcia when he assumed Office on January 1, 2013 as a testament of his belief in accountability and transparency. The Internal Affairs Division (IAD), currently operating under the flag of the Operations Command, functions as the investigative arm of the Constable.
The Internal Affairs Division reviews all complaint investigations for consistency and fairness. Complaints are presented to the Constable and Chief Deputy for a fair and appropriate adjudication and /or sanction, with consideration given to the complainant, the Office, the individual employee, and the public trust.
If you feel you have witnessed any misconduct on the part of our deputies or have a complaint regarding a law enforcement action taken by this office, we encourage you to bring this complaint forward. Although there are many routes a complaint may take during the initial stages, sometimes these complaints can and do end up in the Internal Affairs Division.
To voice your complaint, please call (713)477-2766. A call-taker will gather information from you and send it to the proper supervisory liaison.
The Training Division is responsible for making certain all classified personnel meet the certification, license and annual training cycle requites as established by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE).

The Support Services Division is assigned to the Operations Command. The deputies of this division are all volunteers and are tasked with supporting both the law enforcement objectives and public service objectives of this office.
For many years, the Precinct 2 Constable’s Office has benefited from assistance from a dedicated Support Services Division. Harris County has benefited as well. Dedicated to serving their community, the deputies of the Support Services Division volunteer their time and save the County hundreds of thousands of manpower hours and dollars per year.
These volunteers are trained to the same standards as full-time deputies and offer their time on a non-paid basis.
Each Support Service Deputy typically serves at least 24 hours per month.
Support Service Deputies are often first to be considered full-time employment when positions present themselves.
As fully-certified peace officers in the State of Texas, Support Service Deputies have the same authority and responsibility as full-time law enforcement officers in the state.
Support Service Deputies come from a variety of backgrounds including banking, teaching, construction, medical, firefighting, aviation and many others.
Being a Precinct 2 Support Services Deputy requires a commitment of dedication and time, but offers hands-on experience and law enforcement training that are second to none.
The deputies of the Support Services Division are a select group of outstanding citizens.

The Facility Security Division is assigned to the Operations Command. The deputies of this division are tasked with providing direct and oversight security to the facilities occupied by our Office and the Justice of the Peace courts we serve.
Tasked by the mandates of Texas Law, our Facility Security Division deputies are an integral element of the courtroom security process. It is their goal to provide our judges with a courtroom and ancillary security presence that will ensure their wellbeing and the wellbeing of all in attendance within the courtroom. The deputies of the Facility Security Division, commonly referred to as “bailiffs”, are charged with identifying potential threats to the judges, court personnel, and attending county residents. They operate in a constant state of assessment and act in a manner meant to facilitate a safe and expeditious flow of operations within the courtroom.
The Criminal Warrants Division is assigned to the Operations Command. The deputies of this division are tasked with executing the Class C Misdemeanor criminal warrants (traffic, assault, etc) filed by the Justice Peace Courts of Precinct 2. They work closely with the Patrol Division in executing higher level warrants filed by deputies during the course of their criminal response and investigation.
We also understand that simple oversights occur and that a fast-paced lifestyle can often allow a court date for a traffic citation to pass by before you know it. As a result, a warrant is filed and the potential for arrest, stress and embarrassment can occur.
If this is the case, and you believe you may have had a warrant filed for your arrest out of one of our Justice of the Peace courts, we encourage you to call the court or our office to begin a dialogue with us that will remediate the situation in an expeditious and more pleasant manner.
Remember, there is no risk when you call. You will be provided with the information you need to resolve the warrant.
Our detectives in the Warrant Division can take your call at: 713-477-4070.
