Harold Heuszel For Sheriff

Harold Heuszel For Sheriff Harold Heuszel was born in Houston, Texas in 1957. He attended Houston area public schools, graduating from James Madison Senior High School in 1976 in the top 10% of his class.

Throughout high school he participated in numerous clubs and programs including the Mathematics, German and Chess Clubs as well as the Future Farmers of America (FFA). Showing strong leadership skills early on, Harold was treasurer of the Chess Club and president of the Madison High School FFA. This opportunity led to numerous awards of achievement at both state and local levels. Upon graduation he attended Texas A&M University majoring in Bio-Engineering. Dentistry became his calling and led him to apply to the University of Texas Dental Program. In 1983 he graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree having received many accolades in regard to his studies and achievement. He began working as an associate for a private dental practice while building his own independent practice with the knowledge and experience gained. Continuing education is the key to success in any profession today and Harold was keenly aware of the importance of perfecting his practice early. In 1989 he attended the United Dental Institute of Orthodontics receiving a certificate in Orthodontics. He later attended the University of Texas Dental Implant residency program in 1995 to further refine his craft. His dedication led him to receive an Advance Fellowship degree from the Academy of General Dentistry. In 1993, he opened a second general practice dental office located in Downtown Houston, Texas. Harold has been married to his wonderful wife, Rena', for nearly 30 years. She has continuously been by his side and supported him throughout life’s challenges and achievements. Together they have raised two outstanding sons. In 1990, Harold was invited by Sheriff Johnny Klevenhagen to join the Harris County Sheriff’s Office as a Reserve Deputy. Intrigued by this opportunity to pursue something completely different from dentistry, Harold entered the Harris County Sheriff’s Academy in January of 1991. Once again, he excelled in the academic arena graduating in the top 5% of his class and earning his Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Education (TCLEOSE) license in 1992. After graduation from the Harris County Sheriff’s Academy, Harold was assigned to the Marine Division of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO). In 1993, he was promoted to Training Sergeant for the Marine Division and also participated in the HCSO Dive Recovery Team. During this time he began participating in the HCSO land patrol program to increase his knowledge of law enforcement procedures and best practices. In 1994 he was awarded an Intermediate Peace Officer certificate from TCLEOSE. Several years later Harold was promoted to Lieutenant in District I of the HCSO Reserve Patrol Division. Experience and sound judgment led to his promotion to Captain of HCSO Reserve Patrol Bureau (West Division). Harold’s passion for the Reserve Organization led him to receive his TCLEOSE Instructor certificate in 1996 and he began instructing both regular and reserve classes in the training program at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Academy. He taught a variety of classes including Emergency Medical Training, Communication and Report Writing and assisted in the Firearm Training Program. In 2000, Sheriff Tommy Thomas asked Harold to aid in developing a Reserve program that would assist the HCSO Detective Bureau in local and fugitive warrant apprehension. The success of this endeavor led to Harold’s assistance in developing a “Law Enforcement Flying Armed” course to enhance the fugitive recovery program. During this time Harold enjoyed instructing deputies in regard to transporting prisoners from other states using commercial aircraft. While his devotion to Harris County was strong, Harold was still practicing dentistry on a daily basis. He continued to advance his studies and received a Certification of Conscious Sedation through the Texas Dental Board in 2002 and became an Invisalign Orthodontics provider in 2006.
. That same year he was promoted to Major of the HCSO Reserve Detective Bureau. He attended and received a Taser Instructor License from Taser International in 2004 and in 2006 went on to achieve a Master Peace Officer certificate from TCLEOSE. This is the highest level of education that any peace officer can attain. As a result of the 2008 elections, there was a change in leadership within the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. When the newly elected sheriff takes office, it often leads to major changes in administrative staff as the new sheriff brings in his own command staff. Therefore, Harold retired as Assistant Chief of HCSO Reserve Command. While a door had closed for him in Harris County, Harold still had a passion for law enforcement and the communities they serve. He joined the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office in 2008 and was assigned to land patrol duty where he continues to work today.
