Constable Lazaro "Larry" Gallardo, Jr. Pct.3

Constable Lazaro "Larry" Gallardo, Jr. Pct.3 Your County Constable - Serving the Communities in Precinct 3 since 2001. From the beginning, I have strived to improve and expand the Constable’s Office.

At the start, we started with five deputies and throughout the years have grown to 18 deputies and 3 support staff. Most of the growth started with grants I applied for to target juvenile truancy and delinquency and environmental crime enforcement. Our collection of revenues started with less than $50,000.00 a year then to an average of $3,000,000.00 a year today. This is possible through hard work and dedication of the Constable’s Office. In addition, we have applied for border security grants to keep our communities safe from drugs and criminals. We continue to keep great partnerships with La Joya and Mission school districts in keeping our children safe and in school. A little over a year ago, a partnership was created between the Hidalgo County Irrigation District No. 6 and the Constable’s Office with the task of protecting district-owned waterways and assets. Just recently another partnership was created with Texas A&M University at Kingsville (Valley Campus) by providing a deputy constable during the evening hours to protect students and faculty while classes are being conducted, at no cost to the county. With all this success, we continue to provide professional service in executing civil and criminal process. This is our primary responsibility as well as serving the Justice Courts. We have grown, we have served, we will continue to be effective in the community and will strive to be the best.

A message from our District Attorney. #SafeGuardOurKids

Dear friends, neighbors, and colleagues,

The ongoing and dramatically increased degree of isolation and disconnection created by the COVID-19 pandemic has created an increased risk of child abuse and neglect for already stressed and vulnerable families.

We know all too well that child abuse crosses all boundaries of income, race, ethnic heritage, and religious faith. However, the added stress of job loss, illness, substance abuse, and depression increases the incidence of abuse and neglect.

It truly does take a village to raise infants and children into healthy, thriving, well-adjusted adults. With that in mind, I sincerely hope you will assist us in distributing the attached “Safeguard Our Kids” flyer to your contact lists.

In addition, I kindly ask that you share the attached png of the flyer on your Social Media accounts, with the hashtag #SafeguardOurKids!

With schools being closed until at least September 27, there is one less avenue for the protection of children who show signs of abuse or for children to confide in a trusted adult. Hopefully, an abused or neglected child will open up to a parent, grandparent, or caregiver.

During this unprecedented health crisis, tensions are high, which puts our most vulnerable and innocent youngsters at greater risk. Working together, we can make a difference in the safety and well-being of our children.

Keep their families in your prayers.

Our family in blue is mourning the loss of our fallen brother, Officer Justin R. Putnam, who was killed in the line of duty last evening. Officer Putnam was with SMPD for more than five years. Words can never adequately express our profound sorrow for Officer Putnam's family and loved ones. To say he will be missed is an understatement. Two other officers were wounded during the same incident, Officer Franco C. Stewart and Officer Justin P. Mueller. Both are in critical but stable condition following surgeries. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families. We respectfully ask that all three families are given time to grieve and deal with their situations in private but we thank the community for the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. We greatly appreciate it.
