Commissioner Carlos Leon Presents El Paso County Constables with Resolution: Adoption of Unified Policies and Procedures
On June 9th, during Commissioners Court, Commissioner Carlos Leon presented a resolution acknowledging the county's seven constables who agreed to adopt a county-wide unified policies and procedures manual. This marked the first time all precincts will operate under one document, benefitting the county, the constables, and especially the constituents.
Commissioner Leon began working with the constables in early 2013 in conjunction with members of the County Attorney's Office to develop the procedures which will help guide constables and their staff through the myriad of duties they perform on a daily basis, much like any municipal police department or sheriff's office across Texas.
Policies included Anti-Harassment, Reserve Deputies, Outside Employment, Internal Affairs, Use of Force, Arrest Procedures, Warrants, Bias-Based Profiling and Civil Process.
