Jeff’s Vision


Community engagement and partnership has always been at the forefront of Jeff McGowen’s career.

Jeff will continue in that tradition as Constable, Precinct 4:  He will instill a community-oriented policing philosophy that combines traditional law enforcement with prevention, problem-solving, community engagement and community partnerships.

Jeff wants to be the Constable for all of Precinct 4. The only endorsement he seeks is that of the community.


Citizens must feel free to openly express their concerns and opinions without a negative response from law enforcement. Jeff has an open door policy toward both the general public and his subordinates, and as Constable, he will continue this welcoming approach. Effective public safety requires that Precinct 4 Constables and all local law enforcement agencies communicate, whether it is the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Cities of Houston, Humble, Tomball, The Woodlands Township, or the school districts of Humble, Klein, Tomball, Spring, Cy-Fair, Jersey Village, or Aldine.


Jeff will ensure that the entire Precinct 4 staff is accountable to the citizens of Precinct 4. He will also review ways to streamline the department’s operations to more effectively serve the precinct’s residents.


Jeff will ensure that Precinct 4 Constables are actively patrolling and working with our neighborhoods and businesses to prevent and reduce crime.  When crimes do occur, we will coordinate with surrounding law enforcement agencies to discuss emerging crime trends, and then develop an action plan to bring the culprits to justice.


Family and community is at the forefront of Jeff’s priorities.  This involvement extends not only to his own family, but also to the citizens of Precinct 4.  Through his community engagement in the past 15 years, whether teaching a Self-Defense Class, performing a Home Inspection, conducting a business survey, school assessment, threat assessment or teaching a new mom how to install a child car seat correctly, Jeff will continue to make certain that Precinct 4 has deputies trained in keeping your family safe and secure.
