New Year, New Promotion
We would like to congratulate Mike Jennings on his new promotion to Senior Sergeant.
With 46 years of law enforcement experience, Mike has been a welcome addition to our precinct.
Sgt. Mike Jennings began his law enforcement career in the Houston Police Department where he was part of various units such as Patrol, Narcotics, and S.W.A.T. In his 20 years with Houston P.D., Mike was promoted to Sergeant and served on Nancy Reagan's Just Say No committee, culminating in Mike being named Houston Policeman of the Year in 1974.
After retiring from Houston P.D., Mike moved to Fredericksburg TX, and started working for the Gillespie County Sheriff's Office where he served as Lieutenant over the jail, dispatch, and patrol and became certified as a Master Peace Officer.
Sgt. Mike Jennings was later appointed as Director of CAPCOG (Capitol Area Council of Governments) where he presided over the peace officer academy for 10 years. In his time with CAPCOG, he became an instructor for the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Team and received certifications for Hostage Rescue and Emergency Vehicle Operations.
Sgt. Mike Jennings comes to the Constable's Office after most recently being Chief of Police in Dublin, TX, where he was instrumental in building trust back between the police and its citizens. Mike says he is most proud of "being a public servant to the citizens of the great state of Texas for so many years".
Sgt. Jennings will be taking on new duties involving Special Operations and Investigations in addition to being the training coordinator for our officers. We wish Sgt. Jennings well in his new role.
