Constable deputies from Harris County Precinct 5 are now patrolling The Energy Corridor District seven days a week for the management district’s Security & Public Safety program.

Three constable deputies and one sergeant are working full time for The District, responding to public safety needs in The Energy Corridor. The constables have an office at The District’s headquarters and park their patrol vehicles there.

“We are excited about our new partnership with The Energy Corridor District and look forward to serving The District with community-oriented policing,” says Harris County Constable, Precinct 5 Sergeant Philip Bennett, “as well as by adding increased visibility in The District and a proactive approach to crime prevention. We are here to serve and will do so with great pride and integrity.”

Harris County, Precinct 5 Constable Chief Ted Heap outlined his department’s community-oriented policing approach during a monthly ECD board meeting last fall. The District’s Board of Directors awarded the constable contract in December. Formerly, The District had engaged Houston Police Department (HPD) officers for the patrols.

Sergeant Bennett supervises a team of ECD patrol officers that includes Deputy T. Castroman, Deputy T. Crigler and Deputy K.Z. Jenkins.

The four deputies have staggered hours to distribute patrols over seven days. All reports for service go through the Precinct 5 Dispatch operator stationed nearby in The Energy Corridor on IH-10 at Barker Cypress. Crime and patrol activity reports are presented monthly to The District’s board, which is open to the public.

“We encourage companies in The District with private security forces to get acquainted with our constables and coordinate schedules,” says Martinson. To set up a security meeting with Sergeant Bennett, contact The District offices at (281) 759-3800, or email philip.bennett@cn5.hctx.net.

Calls to Constable Dispatch can immediately reach the officer on duty in The District. If back-up support is needed, Harris County can call on other officers in the area to respond, as well as HPD.

For emergency response, continue to call 911.
