Contract Deputy Program

Constable Ron Hickman
What is the contract deputy program? Well basically the program consists of one or more deputies who are specifically assigned to a subdivision, group of subdivisions, or a municipal utilities district. This is not an extra job. It is a regular patrol position assigned to the specifically to the contract. The deputy will spend at least 70% of his time within the contract with an allowance for the remaining 30% to be spent as needed to support operations and conduct routine activities at the office such as reports and paperwork. The cost of the program is split according between Harris County and the contract with the contract paying 70% and the County picking up the balance.

The deputy works in cooperation with a security director (an individual chosen by the contract, usually a board member, to act as a liaison between the County and the Contract) to determine the contracts needs and to share information.   While a Contract Deputy is not a solution to all problems, it does provide additional law enforcement and deterrence for areas that may want or need additional law enforcement patrol services.  The majority of the nearly 400 deputies employed by the Precinct 4 Constable's Office are contract deputies. For more information regarding the contract deputy program or to schedule a program demonstration meeting please contact our Patrol Division at 281-401-6200 between 8AM and 5PM Monday to Friday. Ask to speak with any Patrol Captain about the contract deputy program.
