ALAN ROSEN SHARES HIS THOUGHTS: Why I am the best candidate for Harris County Constable for Precinct #1

by Alan Rosen
For Your Thought Matters Readers

“My experience at the jail gave me a better understanding of how law enforcement can make a difference in the lives of those at a critical crossroads. In addition to seeing people who needed detention, I saw people who needed help not just punishment.” -- Allen Rosen

The citizens of Precinct 1 deserve a Constable with the proven law enforcement, management and community experience to move the Constable’s Office to a higher level of service and accountability. That is why Major Alan Rosen is the best choice for Precinct 1 Constable. Major Alan Rosen is a 21- year law enforcement veteran with the Harris County Sheriff’s Department.  Rosen is an honors graduate in Criminal Justice from the University of Houston. He is the only candidate in the run-off with direct patrol, management and budgetary experience.

Alan currently serves as a Major and Commander of the Special Operations Bureau for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office managing criminal warrants, fugitive warrants, the child predator apprehension team, sex offender tracking team and the. Tactical Medical Team (Tac Medics), an elite team of Emergency Room Physicians and Paramedics who all have police and S.W.A.T. training.

Under Alan’s leadership the Harris County developed and instituted the Child Predator Apprehension Team, and  warrant apprehension rates have increased 161% and capture rates for the increased by impressive numbers.  Currently, the Child Predator Apprehension Team (CPAT) maintains an 84% capture rate.

As Commander of the Sex Offender Registration Tracking Team (SORT), Alan and his subordinates ensure that registered sex offenders are where they are supposed to be while conducting field interviews and surveying the entire home and work place during visits.

Alan began his law enforcement as a deputy sheriff.  Working in the jail operations, he became well acquainted with policy issues and detention process, as well as the penal side of the job. Later, transferring to Harris County Law Enforcement, his experience and knowledge of the law expanded.  Rather than allowing his work in the county to harden him, instead it helped Alan gain insight, and compassion into the depth and tragedy of the issues facing the incarcerated including mental illness and other problems.

“My experience at the jail gave me a better understanding of how law enforcement can make a difference in the lives of those at a critical crossroads. In addition to seeing people who needed detention, I saw people who needed help not just punishment.”

Transferring to the Patrol Division, Alan learned to solve crimes by listening to what people said… and what they didn’t say, “We were able talk with members of the community, witness what was happening, then go in and make the arrest.” Working in narcotics, Alan was assigned to work on an Undercover Narcotics Street Task Force, purchasing narcotics on the street in an effort to track down the major traffickers supplying the street dealers.

Alan Rosen resides in the Constable Precinct One with his wife of 20 years and their three children. He is deeply committed to keeping families safe, addressing environmental issues and improving the quality of life for all residents of Harris County Constable District Precinct One.
