Vote For Michael Coleman
Hello, my name is Michael Coleman and I am running for the elected position of Harris County Constable Precinct 7. I have faithfully served the citizens of Harris County, Texas as a law enforcement professional for over twenty-seven years; and, now, I want to use the experience, education and leadership skills I have developed during my tenure to serve and protect the citizens of Harris County, Precinct 7, as their next Constable.
Some of the residents and business-owners in our community have lost faith in the law enforcement professionals serving them. It is my goal to restore that faith by establishing closer ties with the residents, community leaders and businesses. This is the fastest, most time-tested method for fostering a “community-oriented” policing relationship.
Cooperation, not competition, between law enforcement agencies is another necessity in making Precinct 7 a safe place to reside and do business. Now, more than ever, it is essential that all facets of law enforcement work together in serving the public in a manner aimed to keep the community safe. It is a proactive rather than a reactive mentality that must be developed.
As a commissioned Texas Master Peace Officer, I am concerned about and willing to take a stand against crime. In this mission, I will not falter. It is my belief that this community and precinct need a new leader in the Constable position.
How do we, as a team, do this? The answer is simple. We remain a team by engaging in the relationship birthed by the “Contract Deputy Program”. This program is the essence of Community Oriented Policing. It develops a close tie with the deputy patrolling an assigned area and the residents and businesses in that area. In order to help this relationship flourish, I want to develop closer ties within the Precinct’s neighborhoods and communities. I will accomplish this by identifying the uniquely different problems that are so often inherent to the diverse neighborhoods or communities within the Precinct. I will ensure that my Command Staff and force is properly trained to develop comprehensive strategic plans of action whereby both the Constable’s Office and the citizens within that area of concern have input and, most importantly, get results. I am committed to being a good steward of the public’s tax dollars and maximizing precious resources, while making our communities safer aimed at improving everyone’s quality of life. I deeply believe that Community Oriented Policing builds trust between the communities we serve and the Deputy Constables who serve within the precinct. When elected as your Constable, I will build upon that trust every day.
Your elected Constable should be accessible and available to address the concerns of the citizens of Precinct 7. When elected, my door will always be open to the citizens in the community, so the citizens can share ideas and problems face to face with their Constable.
