Eddie Brown JR
I was born and raised in the Dallas area to a mother with Marshall TX roots and a father with Navasota roots. Growing up I looked up to my parents and older brother as heroes. My dad was in law enforcement, and my mom worked for DISD school district. I watched my dad excel with several promotions while leading and inspiring great groups of men and women to do the same. At a early age, I always knew I wanted to follow in his footsteps. My family was relocated to California and later returned back to the Dallas area where I attended Desoto East Junior High School. I later transferred to Reed Junior High due to address of our new residence. I graduated Duncanville High School and continued my education at the University of North Texas in Denton.
I majored in criminal justice because I wanted to pursue a career within law enforcement. During college, I participated in the Dr. Emmet J. Conrad Internship sponsored by Senator Royce West. While interning, I was able to gain work experience with Texas DPS, Texas Department of Criminal Justice Parole Board, and Dallas Police Department. Once I graduated from the UNT, I was offered a full time position with Texas Department of Criminal Justice as a parole officer. I supervised high risk ex-offenders and assisted with various programs in rehabilitating ex-offenders.
A good friend approached me and discussed the possibility of becoming a police officer. I registered for the test and was offered a spot in the police academy. Once I became an officer with the Plano Police Department, I respectfully took an oath to protect and serve. Everyday, I diligently performed my duties based of that oath. As an officer, I have been assigned to act as a school resource officer and patrol officer. One of my biggest joys is speaking with the youth on daily interactions, serving diverse communities, and assisting with mental health officer trainings. I’ve received many accommodations, the one dear to me is when I talked a person off a bridge. The citizen was having a Mental Crisis and I was able to get him off the bridge and get the help that they needed.
Out of all the positions I’ve held, being a father to my teen and seven year old is the best. I always tell them to follow their dreams, and after a lengthy discussion with my family, that is exactly what I’m continuing to do by my running for constable. I have been supervised by great leaders throughout my life and careers and believe I exemplify what it takes to lead. I’m highly motivated to meet people within Precinct 4 and gain their trust.
If elected, I promise to continue to be accessible and lead with integrity and respect. I plan to implement a yearly scholarship program for graduating high school seniors, visit each school within Precinct 4 and promote continuous education for the communities regarding civil duties. I’m eager to hit the ground running and hope I can earn your support. I’m grateful to receive endorsements from the Texas Democrats with Disabilities Caucus and Mexican American Bar Association. I’m not a Politician, I’m a man who cares.
