Tommy Koen has announced that he will run in the Republican primary for the position of Constable of Precinct #3.
A lifetime resident of Precinct 3, Koen knows his community as well as anyone. He attended school in Hardin and graduated from Hardin High School in 1971. He is a lifelong member of the Hardin Methodist Church. Tommy is married to Rebecca Carter Koen. Having his roots in the Hardin area for many years, Tommy has made a lifelong commitment to the area.
Koen is also committed to his profession. After graduating from high school in 1971, he began his law enforcement career working for Liberty Police Department as a Patrol Officer. In the 33 years of his experience in law enforcement, Koen has attended many specialized classes dealing with (i.e. terrorists, evictions, family violence, etc). 24 of those years of service have been as a full time officer. Koen is a Master Peace Officer and currently works for Liberty County Sheriff’s Offices as a Patrol Sergeant. He is responsible for the supervision of five deputies that take calls for service in Liberty County.
Koen carries certifications by Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Education as an Instructor, Firearms Instructor, Field Training Instructor, and Emergency Vehicle Operations Instructor.
On his days off, Koen works security at the Hardin Chambers Center, also known as the Alternative School, in Liberty. He has done this for the past 8 school years. His job there allows him to work with children from all of the school districts in Liberty and Chambers counties, including Hardin Jr. High and Hardin High School. This experience has given him valuable knowledge in dealing with juvenile problems.
“I think that the citizens of Precinct #3 deserve a Constable who has a vast experience in law enforcement and will work full-time for the voters of Precinct #3. I have handled hundreds of calls for service in my tenure as a peace officer everything from homicide to goats loose on the roadway. I am experienced in serving warrants and handling civil issues. I would appreciate your support and vote in the March Republican Primary."
