Press Release: Aledo Resident, Iraq Veteran Declares Candidacy for Parker County Constable
Navy Cop Scott Jones returned to Aledo from Iraq in March 2011 with a renewed and invigorated commitment to law enforcement and public service. “I cannot recall a time in my life when I did not want to serve the public and protect the freedoms we hold dear. I have been fortunate to spend more than thirty years in law enforcement doing exactly that. Today I embrace a new calling and a new chapter by announcing my candidacy for the Office of Parker County Constable, Precinct 4.”
“I have been blessed to see first hand how the commitment of even a single dedicated community policeman can bring peace, calm, and prosperity to a community that has known only chaos, confusion and lawlessness. I want to take my thirty years of law enforcement experience at the federal, state, and local levels and combine them with my personal commitment to outreach and the education of our youth and help build a safer and more closely knit community.”
“I am committed to the traditional roles of our Texas Constable in the service of civil citations and warrants and the smooth operation of the Justice of the Peace courtroom. But, the advantage of the Constable’s office is its close tie to the community…to a smaller community than the sheriff’s office…to the community on a neighborhood to neighborhood level. This is the level at which the local Constable can make a difference and this is the level at which I have had my greatest professional success. I was honored to become the National Liquor Law Enforcement Agent of the Year in large part for my efforts in the classroom teaching our children, right here in Parker County, that underage drinking will not help them achieve their dreams. As the resident agent for the TABC here in Parker County I know this community well and my desire to serve as your Constable is rooted in a long and committed history of service to you.”
“As a Chief Petty Office in the Navy I commanded young Navy cops in a combat zone and was inspired by their daily efforts to carry out their duties in a nation torn apart by complex and deadly forces. While we are blessed to live in a free country without those complex and deadly forces…I will honor the lessons I have learned and apply that same leadership and commitment to the challenges we face here in Parker County…to help build a safer community and a more civil society. I thank you now for your commitment, involvement, and support.”
