At one time, Precinct 5 was a wide and sparsely populated area. The ranches and farms that existed more than 100 years ago have given way to densely populated neighborhoods, parks, and businesses. Today the Harris County Constable's Office Precinct 5 is one of the largest constable's offices in the country.  Spanning an area over 300 square miles, it covers all of west Harris County and is home to more than 1 million residents.

In 2001, development began for the Energy Corridor, a seven-mile stretch of corporate buildings straddling interstate 10 and located in the heart of Precinct 5.  In the years since, the community growth in this area has been unprecedented.  The growth that this department has experienced in these same years has been equally unprecedented.  Once limited to basic patrol functions with less than 50 sworn deputies, the Precinct 5 Constable's Office has grown substantially, not only in size but in capability.

Almost 400 sworn deputies, with an additional 50 civilian support staff, now serve the residents of this precinct.  Combining state-of-the-art technologies that provide capabilities on land, in water, and in the air, with advanced training in numerous fields, Precinct 5 has grown into its role as a major metropolitan law enforcement agency.  But it's not just the capabilities of the department that make it what it is, it's a long standing reputation of professionalism and commitment to duty as well.  Because of these factors the Harris County Constable's Office Precinct 5 has earned its place as one of the most respected law enforcement agencies in the state of Texas.
