Deputy Constable Gabriel R. Medina

Deputy Medina is a strong believer in the philosophy by an unknown author, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for life." In other words, to understand and benefit from anything, it's imperative that we participate in it with hands on. Deputy Medina is truly confident the DARE / G.R.E.A.T Program far exceeds this criteria to help guide our youth in the right direction.
