Harris County Precinct 7 Constable, May Walker, is committed to providing high quality, innovative, community oriented services to meet the needs of the diverse neighborhoods located within Precinct 7's boundaries. After years of patrolling Houston's streets as a police officer with HPD, Constable Walker realized the effectiveness of using K-9 teams to help deter and combat crime. Having officers patrol in well-marked K-9 vehicles has proven to be an extremely effective way to deter crime.
Precinct 7 is spread out over 94.37 miles with an estimated population of 400,000 residents and growing. Due to its considerable size, convenient location, and large population, there has also been an increase in the number of violent crimes and property crimes. That is why it is important to Constable Walker to have her department be adequately equipped and staffed to handle and assist in the ongoing effort of "taking a bite out of crime".
Deputy Chris Krause's career in law enforcement began with the City of Stafford in 1997. He discovered a passion for handling K9's in 2005 while employed with the Fort Bend Independent School District Police Department, FBISD PD. Since 2005, Deputy Krause has had the privilege of handling four K9's including Jett, his current partner.
K9 Jett is a six year old female Belgian Malinois. Jett is trained in the detection of Narcotics, Marijuana, Cocaine, Methamphemine, Heroine, and Ecstasy. She was trained in what is known as the "clicker" method. She will passively alert by freezing in an alert position until the clicker is used to release her indication of an illegal substance(s).
