Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman has issued more safety equipment to his deputies. One hundred and ninety-nine constable deputies have been equipped with the best-on-the-market brand of ballistic vests for their protection while working patrol duties.

Herman paid the $134,000 expense from monies he saved from last year’s budget. “The men and women in blue who serve and protect our community should feel safe and secure while doing it. Everyone goes home safe.”
