    David is originally from the Houston area. After serving in the United States Marine Corps, he moved his family to Austin; ultimately settling down in Kyle in 2007.

    In 2008, he set his sights on Law Enforcement and applied with the Kyle Police Department, who would later sponsor him at the Hays County Sheriff's Office Basic Peace Officer's Course in 2009.

    David holds a Master Peace Officer license through the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE). His Peace Officer Commission is currently held with the Caldwell County Constable's Office, Precinct 3, where he serves as a Lieutenant.





    Texas Constables must be licensed by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) by attending a basic police academy. Any certified Texas Peace Officer may run for election as a Constable; however, they must reside in the precinct for which they run.

    Constables are the first link in the County's chain of Law Enforcement. They are sometimes referred to as the Executive Officer of the Justice of the Peace Courts.

    By statute, Constables must serve all warrants, precepts, and civil processes lawfully directed to them. Constables are also required by law to be present or ensure one of their Deputy Constables are present, during hearings held by the Justice of the Peace.

    In addition, per the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Constables have the same duties and powers as any Law Enforcement Officer and may, therefore, enforce all traffic and criminal laws, including criminal investigations. It is not uncommon for Constable offices to have traffic and/or criminal investigation divisions as well as patrol and special response teams.

    Texas Constables and Texas State Troopers work closely together and both use the Justice of the Peace as their primary Judge/court. Their offices are involved in the overall effort to reduce the effects of crime in their communities.
