Meet Matthew

For 38 years, Matthew has been serving and protecting Williamson County as a law enforcement officer. Born and raised in Bartlett, his parents owned and operated a convenience store where he often worked as a teenager. Matthew credits his time at the store for developing his strong work ethic. After graduating high school, Matthew attended the Central Texas Regional Police Academy in Killeen. After the academy, he was quickly hired as a jailer at the Williamson County Jail. As a Deputy Sheriff, he learned the importance of working well with agencies of all sizes to benefit the community. 

After five years, Matthew joined the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). With early assignments in Cedar Park and Georgetown, Matthew continued to build strong relationships with all Williamson County law enforcement departments. Matthew's devotion to serving and protecting his community earned him a promotion to Sergeant in the Texas Ranger Division. Following his promotion, Matthew earned the opportunity to serve on the protective detail for Governor George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush during his 2000 presidential campaign. 

In 2002, Matthew transferred to the Georgetown Texas Ranger Office, where during his tenure, he conducted numerous officer-involved shooting investigations, public integrity investigations, homicides, kidnappings, and assault investigations. During this assignment, Matthew became a member of the Texas Ranger Reconnaissance Team, which took him on missions to the Texas-Mexico border, apprehending those who attempted to cross the border illegally. 

In 2011, Matthew was again called to serve on the Governor's Protective Detail for Governor Rick Perry's presidential campaign. Three years later, Matthew was promoted to Lieutenant and supervised ten Texas Rangers covering fourteen Central Texas counties and the newly formed Texas Ranger Public Integrity Unit.

After more than 28 years of dedicated service, Matthew retired from the Texas Department of Public Safety as a Lieutenant in the Texas Ranger Division. Following his retirement, he served as a Sergeant Investigator for Williamson County District Attorney Shawn Dick. In October 2021, the Williamson County Commissioner's Court unanimously appointed Matthew to Precinct 3 Constable, where he currently serves. 

Matthew has been married to M'Lissa for 33 years. M'Lissa and Matthew raised their two children in Williamson County and are now the grandparents to two incredible grandchildren.
