Constable Alan Rosen’s law enforcement knowledge, ethics, business experience, training, and education help him manage and lead the Harris County Precinct One Constable’s Office to further success and growth.
First elected in 2012 and re-elected in 2016, Constable Rosen has spent more than 29 years in local law enforcement at the Constable’s Office and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. He has worked in the Patrol Unit, Marine Patrol Unit, Warrants, Narcotics and Mental Health.
Constable Rosen has saved taxpayer money every year in office by bringing a business approach to managing the budget. During his first year in office, he created the first Precinct One Special Response Group (“SRG”), the S.W.A.T. – Certified Tactical Response Team and the Game Room and Human Trafficking Task Force. As a leader in emerging technology, Constable Rosen led Precinct One to become the first Harris County law enforcement agency to deploy body cameras for deputies. One of his first official acts as Constable was to ensure that all personnel received mandatory ethics training. Rosen was the first constable in Harris County to assign an employee to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s Anti-drug Task Force.
Constable Rosen has initiated groundbreaking and unique collaborations between law enforcement and the community. We organize and implement a Teen Leadership Summit to help bridge the gap between law enforcement and local youth. Weekly, we host a “Been There, Done That” program which focuses on restorative justice for people affected by human trafficking and prostitution. Precinct One brings a unique approach to fighting human trafficking by offering social service wrap-around services for the women and girls who are victimized. We work with local non-profits to help coordinate a reunification with the victims and their families. Our employees offer support to the victims throughout the course of court proceedings. Additionally, we hold seminars to help parents, educators and others more readily recognize signs of human trafficking.
Under Constable Rosen’s leadership, the Precinct One Constable’s Office was three times awarded the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Outstanding Law Enforcement Agency of the Year and was also recognized as the National Night Out Rookie Agency of the Year. Additionally, during Hurricane Harvey, Harris County leaders tapped Constable Rosen to manage the security for the entire NRG shelter for all residents of Harris County.
Constable Rosen established the first homeless outreach team for the department. He believes deeply in being a social service law enforcement agency that routinely aids the homeless and opens warming centers for them during cold weather events.
