  • Harris County Pct 4 Lays OFF 90 Deputies!!!

    So as many of you know Harris County Constables Office Pct 4 laid off 97 people yesterday, 90 of those being Deputies. I was one of them, yesterday during my shift at approximately 6:30pm, myself along with others were called over the radio to report to Station 1. We reported there so that they could tell us we didnt have a job anymore. I was forced to give up my badge at that time too. The media was out there and they recorded as we turned in out ID's and badges. It was so embarassing.

    We were told that we could still get on as reserves to keep our police license active. It was so shady the way they did things. Some of us including myself had turds that we were about to arrest. We had to release them and apologize to the complainant. I myself told the complainant that more than likely I wouldnt have a job anymore so I had to release the guy because higher ups were calling us that they wanted us to report to Station 1 ASAP.

    I tried so hard to get into law enforcement to have it taken away like that. I cant win in this world. I served my county and did a tour in Iraq. I have gotten a college degree and have never been trouble. But here I am with no job, as the lazy ones, brown nosers, those with DADDY in the higher up positions and the trouble makers maintain their jobs. I dont understand, I guess I need to kiss some *** to get ahead or use my sexuality (if I were a female) to keep my job and trust me we have both in the department. When I was working I could care less about those people as long as they did not interfere with me I could care less about them.

    Anyways, I will get up from this and try to get hired on somewhere else. Maybe the military is my only calling and the only department that respects me for who I am and what Ive done. Thinking about going over seas with a contractor.

    I ask that you guys pray for the guys that were laid off that have families and babies on the way. Damn department couldnt even control the media, they recorded us as we turned in our badges and ID's. They wante to speak with us but I was not embarassed and teary eye to do anthing. I also did not want to say anything stupid that would burn me with the department or other agencies where I plan to apply. GOOD LUCK for the guys who work in Harris county, its turning into a nightmare. I dont know much about politics but it seems since Obama stepped into office, everything is getting worst....

      Good luck, Brother. I wish you luck in anything you do. This job, as important as it is, doesn't mean what it used to in the public's eye. Hopefully one day soon it will change. I know if I haf to turn my badge in I'd feel horrible. Good luck to you and your fellow deputies. I hope you find employment soon.

        Sorry to hear that Zurita and I feel for anyone thats lost their job do to politics or budgets. Thing is, we have a republican governor here in Texas and the republicans are the ones making all the cuts trying to make the President look bad. Hes there, they dont like it, and their trying to make sure he doesn't get back in. Take a look at Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio, they are cutting everything back, even the basic essentials such as police, fire, and teachers. What America are we living in? I'm a pretty conservative guy but I know BS when I smell BS and these republicans are playing with our lives to secure tax breaks for companies and the wealthy like we are pieces of garbage. Only the connected stay ahead ie...the ones with DADDYs as higher ups or with good political cover. Its BS bro I wish you the best. They don't care, if its not affecting them, their riches buddies or their post political aspirations they just don't care. Again..........Best of Luck and God Bless!

          First of all, I am sorry to ZURITA 210 and any other law enforcement officer that loses their job. NYGUY, Don't blame this on the republicans. The economy is bad because of POTUS. He has ruined the economy with his liberal (socialist) agenda. A true conservative would not make the alegations that you have made. I believe you are a wolf (liberal) in sheeps clothing.
          When seconds count, we are ONLY minutes away!!!

            I agree, don't blame this on the governor. Just be thankful Texas is not in the financial state of Cali or NJ!

            Obama's stimulus failed miserably and billions wasted. Sorry to get off track, doesn't help Z with his layoff anymore. Just keep trucking along and hopefully someone will pick you up. It seems like most agencies are still hiring here in TX, but to be honest I do not know anything about Harris County.. sorry.

              Keep your chin up, and don't ever second guess yourself about not being a brown noser in order to keep your job. Stay true to yourself and things will work out for you! Godspeed!

                    But honestly, with your prior military, look at the reserves. Good opportunities for short term active duty work, plus the medical insurance for you and your family isnt but $190 a month. I started in th navy reserves last june....not to bad of a gig. Did 3 weeks in Hawaii in November, pocketed $4000. Just a thought....

                      Yea, im thinking about joining the Army Reserves and working full time with them, as a reserve you get paid more when activated to full time but still under your reserve unit. Im currently applying everywhere right now, but once Ive exhausted my resources then im also thinking about going overseas with a contracting agency. Wont be bad spending a year over there and saving up money. I dont have a family, just a girlfriend and she makes good money. We have talked about this and she said that she doesnt want me to but if its the only choice I have left then she will be ok with me leaving overseas.

                        There are a few "cool guy" ARNG units over in San Antone you could check out. I don't know what you did in the Army but it's worth a shot. I wouldn't recommend doing "big army" reserves. But be careful about running back to the military, hits are coming there soon too.

                          Wow sorry to hear that. I would imagine that things would have been picking up, not declining in regards to headcount...

                          They just finished Beltway 8 and the autobahn is now open. I see Pct 3 deputies every 5 miles on that highway every day now.

                          Might be a tree worth barking up, good luck.
                          The beatings will continue until morale improves.

                              Hardly, it is the Republican's fault 100%.
