KATY — Precinct 5 Constable’s Office deputies have a lot of tools to keep the public safe, including batons.
New deputies under Constable Ted Heap’s charge recently trained is the use of handheld batons. These are used in close quarters when hand-to-hand tactics are required.
Deputies go through a detailed training process, then get put to the test by Pct. 5 instructors when surrounded by would-be bad guys, having to subdue their suspects and protect themselves at the same time.
There’s a lot of energy and sweat that go into it but they’ll be better prepared when they’re in a real-life situation with your safety, and possibly their lives, on the line.
Despite the precinct’s headquarters stationed on Interstate 10, the precinct provides law enforcement coverage for much of Cypress and reaches south of the Katy area.
