Constable Neighborhood Watch Program
Upon taking office in 2014 Constable Serene initiated a program of patrolling neighborhoods in Precinct 3
to evaluate their posting of Neighborhood Watch Signs as a “message” to criminals that this neighborhood is
“tough on crime “and is always “Watching Out” for criminal activity. Through this program Constable
Serene has provided and installed at no cost to the neighborhood as many “Neighborhood Watch”
signs as needed to notify anyone considering criminal activity in this neighborhood that “they”
are being “watched” and they will be able to be easily identified and quickly arrested
by local law enforcement officers patrolling the neighborhood.
Helping the “Helpers” Program
Constable Serene focuses on donating his off duty time to assist the volunteer fire departments in Kendall
County in the fundraising activities they hold throughout the year. The donation of his time to provide
security for the event and the contribution of silent and live auction items helps these volunteer first
responders raise the money needed to purchase the essential equipment needed to fight fires and
provide EMS service to the citizens living in Precinct 3 and Kendall County.
San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo
Western Art Contest
Constable Serene serves as a Director for the San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo and has worked on
the Western Art Committee for the last thirteen years. This committee awards college scholarship money to
South Texas area students whose submitted Western Art was judged as a Grand, Reserve, or Art Class
Champion during the annual San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo's Western Art Judging
Contest. In past years scholarships awarded by this committee have ranged from $ 4,000 to over
$ 20,000 per student. Art students from Boerne High School, Comfort High School, Geneva
School, as well as several Home Schooled students have received scholarship money for
the artwork they submitted. Constable Serene feels it is important these talented
Kendall County high school art students have been recognized and rewarded for
their hard work and fantastic art talent. The scholarship money each student
received was essential in that individual being able to attend
college and further their education.
