Duties of a Constable

  • Constables and their deputies in Texas are official, certified Texas law-enforcement officers. Constables and their deputies must graduate from a state-certified law enforcement academy. All peace officers in Texas are trained to the same state requirement. Constables and their Deputies also have identical powers of arrest as county sheriffs and their deputies.

Dan and Tia Otto in Germany

I have over 26 years in law enforcement, where I conducted many traffic stops, apprehended many felons, investigated motor accidents, assisted battered women, and testified against criminal activity. During my tenure, I moved up the ranks and currently hold a position with the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Office as Sergeant. I work with highly trained Sheriff’s Deputies serving the citizens of Rockwall County on a daily basis.

I already know the people and have built a relationship with the enforcement officers and departments that are needed to protect and serve the citizens of Precinct 3.

I’m kingly aware of family violence procedures, civil process, and civil attachments. I’m a firm believer of that if you and your staff are well trained, then your community is well protected. I have served the citizens of Rockwall County for over 26 years and would like to continue to do so as your constable.

I look forward to meet you all to listen and discuss the vision I have for Rockwall County Constable’s Office Precinct 3.
