The following are the two candidates running for Constable, Precinct No. 1.
Daryl Segura hopes to provide a new vision and direction for the office of Constable, Precinct No. 1.
If elected, Segura said he would continue to serve the people with honesty and integrity, with his new vision to improve communities by creating programs geared towards our children’s safety and community awareness.
He also would like to work closely with the Fort Bend County Adult and Juvenile Probation Departments to monitor registered sex offenders and probationers in the community to deter future criminal activities.
The new direction Segura would take the Constable’s office in is to help create an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect among the citizens of Fort Bend County.
Segura views the future direction of the Constable Precinct 1 office as executing civil paperwork, criminal warrants and utilizing all the enforcement powers of Texas Peace Officers.
With 20 years of experience enforcing Texas State Laws, Segura has served the citizens of Fort Bend County for over 15 years and witnessed the needs of our growing community, which include a Civilian Jailer, Deputy Sheriff, Deputy Bailiff, Corporal, Patrol Officer and School Resource Officer.
Segura began at the Houston Police Department in 1991 as a Civilian Jailer, but was hired by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office and worked there for 13 years.
He has been employed with the Rosenberg Police Department since 2006, and is assigned to the School Resource Division in Lamar Consolidated Independent School District.
His most recent acknowledgements for service and dedication to law enforcement are the 2010 Willie D. McQueen Jr. Employee Of The Year Award and a Police Commendation in Recognition for Outstanding Performance Involving Great Contribution to Law Enforcement, both from the Rosenberg Police Department and the City of Rosenberg.
Segura was born and raised in Precinct 1, and he and his wife choose to raise their two children there.
Constable A.J. Dorr has announced his bid for reelection as Constable of Precinct 1.
“My office has always had an open door policy to listen to and meet the needs of the citizens of not only Precinct 1, but all of Fort Bend County,” said Dorr. “I plan to continue the efficient and effective service to the public, utilizing the best trained and equipped staff possible.”
His priorities are to operate an efficient and effective department, and he feels this has been accomplished by consistently serving an average of 1,200 civil writs, citations and subpoenas each month.
Constable Dorr feels that his department is one that the citizens of Precinct 1 can have pride and confidence in and call with any problem.
His staff consists of 23 Deputies and three clerks — four are former Police Chiefs and one is a former Constable.
Fourteen of the Deputies have Master Peace Officer Licenses and seven have Advanced Peace Officers Licenses.
One Deputy has a Masters Degree in Education, five Deputies have Bachelors Degrees and five Deputies have Associate Degrees.
After graduating from Needville High School, Constable Dorr served four years in the United States Marine Corps where he was meritoriously promoted to the ranks of Private First Class, Lance Corporal, Corporal and then Sergeant.
He left the Marine Corps and attended Sam Houston State University and received a Bachelors Degree in Law Enforcement and Police Science.
Dorr began his career with the Houston Police department in 1977.
In 1986, he returned to Needville as Chief of Police, and he served over 10 years until his election as Constable of Precinct 1.
Dorr also served as Director and former President of the Fort Bend County Fair, Director and two-time President of the Needville Youth Fair and as Director of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
He also is active in the Senior Citizens Organization and Immanuel United Church of Christ.
Constable Dorr and his wife, Sandra, live in Needville. They have three children and three grandchildren.
