The COPS Office is pleased to feature the Harris County (Texas) Constable Precinct 3 (HCC3) as the November 2019 winner of the Community Policing in Action Photo Contest. The winning photo features HCC3 Deputy Douglas Johnson, who stopped in for a quick bite to eat at a restaurant when he met the young man pictured. The young man challenged Deputy Johnson to a game of chess.

The Harris County Constable Precinct 3 is located near Houston in Channelview, Texas. The town is home to over 40,000 people and growing in population every year. According to its website, the HCC3’s mission is to maintain a partnership with its diverse community by “providing effective, efficient, and professional law enforcement services” to each individual it serves. The department outlines its values through the acronym I C.A.R.E.: Integrity, Courage, Accountable, Respect, and Ethical. HCC3 is led by Constable Sherman Eagleton, a longtime resident of Harris County with a law enforcement career spanning more than 25 years.

“I have witnessed first-hand the importance of serving diverse communities in [Harris County Precinct 3] of all ethnic backgrounds and people from across party lines, each with their own community and culture.”
– Constable Sherman Eagleton
