• Mr. Speaker, Gary Warman , my friend who has served 35 years with the Humble Police Department, is retiring as a Texas lawman . Gary should be recognized for his fine career and his outstanding public service to the community of Humble and the great State of Texas .
  • After graduating from Sam Houston High School in Houston, Texas , Gary joined the United States Marines Corps in 1968. He served a tour in South Vietnam at Marble Mountain near Da Nang Air Base. Gary is an honorable defender of liberty and freedom and I thank him for his service to our country.
  • Following his service in the Marines, Gary moved back to Houston and began working as a millwright.
  • His father was a millwright, so he naturally learned the trade. He worked in several power plants around the Houston area for the next five years.
  • It wasn't long before Gary decided to fulfill his childhood dream of being a policeman. In 1975, he made that dream come true by joining Harris County Constable Precinct 1 where he trained at the Texas A &M Police Academy. He worked for Constable Walter Rankin for two years, before joining Harris County Precinct 4 under Constable C.R. Davis.
  • In 1979, he was offered a job as a patrol officer and thus began his long career fighting crime with the Humble Police Department. He quickly rose through the ranks as patrol sergeant, detective sergeant, lieutenant of detective division, and lieutenant of patrol division.
  • His personality and professionalism quickly gained him respect from the law enforcement community.
  • He was promoted to Chief of Police in 2002. His 13 years of faithful service as Chief of Police makes him the longest sitting Chief in the history of the City of Humble.
  • Gary obtained additional police training along the way. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy 174th session and Leadership Command College at Sam Houston State University. He also holds a Master Peace Officer Certificate. He is a member of the Texas Police Chief's Association, North Harris County Criminal Justice Association, Arabia Shrine Temple, International Association of Police Chiefs and a life member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
  • On behalf of the Second Congressional District of Texas , this remarkable Texan should be commended for his exemplary service and dedication to the City of Humble. He will be dearly missed by his fellow officers, City of Humble employees, citizens of Humble, Texas and me. We wish him happy hunting, fishing, and golfing. Thank you, Gary , for dedicating your life to public service and making our community a fine place to live and raise a family. Job well done.
  • And that's just the way it is
