This week Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable Rowdy Hayden received the “Best Practice Award” at the 78th JPCA of Texas Education Conference in College Station, out of 780 Constables in Texas. The “Best Practices Award” is awarded yearly to the office or individual who embodies innovation and creativity in their work. The award highlights Precinct 4 work in bringing healing resources to those in need “after the cuffs are removed”. By showing there is hope and help available to those who want it so that they can break the addiction cycle. Their groundbreaking “Constable 180” program will highlight those that have made a positive change in their life and broke the cycle and hopefully will help others to make the exact change in their life as well. Almost 21 million Americans have at least 1 addiction, yet only 10% of them receive treatment.
