CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Chief Deputy David Lindner for Nueces Co. Precinct 2 Constable has about 25 years of experience in law enforcement. He's worked for different agencies from the Nueces County Jail, to CCISD police and more.

He tells KRIS 6 News reporter Tony Jaramillo about what a typical day looks like for him.
"I start my day off with taking paperwork from our office to the courthouse. I stop by Judge Thelma Rodriguez's office and pick up any paperwork that is going the courthouse for them," Lindner said.

"In our precinct, we serve a lot of civil papers, which is Attorney General child support papers, divorce papers, small claims, evictions, writ of possessions, which is where we physically move people out of the house and return the property back to the landlord," the Chief Deputy said.

But the long-time law enforcement officer said that's not all the constable's office does.
"On top of that, we also perform law enforcement duties as far as responding to calls for service. And also, enforce traffic laws.

"That we're here to help. We have many different resources to assist people in whatever questions and concurs that they have. About public safety, anything in general. We can help," Lindner said.
