A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
As a United States Marine and member of the National Rifle Association the right of citizens to keep and bear arms is not negotiable and I will never support any action to deny this right.
Sheriff Pittman’s Posse
As Sheriff of Harris County I will form a 1000 plus member volunteer posse consisting of Harris County citizens. The posse will serve many roles in supplementing the mission of the Sheriff such as searching for lost persons, special events and any other assignments as deemed necessary by the Sheriff. The posse will be formed into military style regiments, battalions, companies and platoons with a military rank opportunities for posse members. The posse will provide opportunities for citizens to get involved in the community by assisting the sheriff.
Enforcing the Law
This may seem a bit basic, but believe it or not there are some who believe some laws should not be enforced. Barack Obama has set the tone for this behavior and it will stop with Carl Pittman as Sheriff of Harris County. A driver stopped with no license,or insurance will no longer be issued a ticket and sent driving on their way. We will add one more “no”………NO CAR!
To issue a ticket to this driver who then goes down the road and kills you and/or your family is negligence and will not happen on my watch.
Public Integrity Unit
As the highest ranking elected law enforcement officer in the county, the sheriff must set the standard in maintaining public trust. In the furtherance of this goal the PIU will be responsible for investigating any allegation of criminal conduct by an elected or appointed public office holder. It should not take an Investigative Reporter to hold public officials accountable.
Legislative Advisory Unit
As the largest sheriff’s office in Texas we must maintain an open line of communication with our legislators in Austin. We will seek legislation to help in maintaining law and order and provide input on proposed legislation to insure the “unintended consequences” are known before laws are passed.
