(Information updated April 27, 2006) General Clerical

Teamwork: a philosophy that Sheriff Rand Henderson takes to heart. Not only will teamwork be the philosophy of Rand Henderson’s new Leadership team, but it will also be his plan for law enforcement and the community. Teamwork is based off of a policing model named Community Oriented Policing. A strategy in which Sheriff Henderson plans to put into effect upon his swearing in on January 1st. This model promotes organizational strategies to proactively address crime, social disorder, and fear of crime. Community Oriented policing will create a special partnership between the Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of Montgomery County. This partnership encourages teamwork and will result in increased communication and crime reduction. Rand Henderson respectfully accepts his new role as the Sheriff of Montgomery County and is fully prepared to lead his team and his citizens to achieve a greater sense of security for all.

Rand Henderson is a native Texan, lifelong public servant, and a 22 plus year veteran with both law enforcement and corrections experience. He holds a Master Peace Officer Certification, Law Enforcement Instructor License, Crime Prevention Inspector License, as well as a Texas Jail License. He is married to the love of his life, Christina, who is a native of Conroe and an 11th grade English Teacher at Willis High School. They have two children, Rylie (11) and Reid (9), who both attend Willis schools. Rand graduated from Palestine High School and attended college at Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in Huntsville.

While attending college, Rand worked full time at the Texas Department of Corrections at the Huntsville or “Walls” unit in downtown Huntsville. At the Walls, he provided security at the unit and for numerous executions that took place during his tenure. Rand received a Bachelor of Science from the Sam Houston State College of Criminal Justice in Law Enforcement/Police Science in 1994. Immediately upon graduation, he began training that summer in the Texas Peace Officer Academic Licensing Academy (TPOALA), which was co-hosted by Sam Houston and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

After graduating from the police academy in 1994, Rand was hired by the MCSO and began working as a Deputy assigned to The Woodlands Division of Patrol District 2. Rand excelled as a Patrol Deputy and was recognized as The Woodlands Patrol Officer of the Year for 1997 for his efforts in street level enforcement, as a community policing deputy, and in his role as liaison to The Woodlands Watch. One incident of note that led to the honor was when Rand found a suspicious vehicle during his routine night shift patrol. He approached the vehicle, which was parked in a hidden location behind an elementary school in The Woodlands. The driver fled and Rand was able to stop the car and conduct an investigation whereby he found that the male driver was in the process of attempting to sexually assault a young boy. Because of his aggressive patrol tactics, the sexual assault never occurred, but the suspect was arrested and charged with felony Child Indecency. The suspect was found to be on Parole in Florida for a similar child sex crime and Rand traveled to Miami to testify in a Parole hearing where the suspect was sentenced to life in prison.

Rand received his first promotion in 1998 to the rank of Corporal where he continued to train and practice the art of community policing in The Woodlands as well as perform shift supervisor functions, and train new deputies in the field training program. Rand was promoted to Patrol Sergeant (first-line supervisor) in 2000 and he served as an evening shift sergeant and then as a day shift sergeant assigned to District 1 in Conroe. He served in that capacity until promotion to Lieutenant (mid-manager) in 2002 at the age of 31. He is still the youngest person to hold that rank in the modern history of the MCSO. As the MCSO Administrative Lieutenant, Rand was tasked with a variety of specialized jobs such as Public Information Officer, technical writer for all internal policies, grant application author and manager, agency webmaster, emergency management specialist, and field training program coordinator.

In 2004, Rand applied for and was accepted to the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT) Leadership Command College (LCC). This program is designed for Texas law enforcement executive development and is held in three week intervals in three different locations across the State. Many LCC attendees take years to complete the program if they are able to complete it at all. Rand attended all three modules and completed his administrative research paper all in one calendar year and he is proud to have graduated with class #48 in October 2004.

In 2005, the first year of Sheriff Tommy Gage’s administration, he transferred to Patrol District 1 where he served as the District Commander and managed 25 line level deputies and first line supervisors. In 2006, he transferred to the Internal Affairs Unit where he managed all internal investigations of allegations of misconduct, use of force, officer involved shootings, and worked to develop policies as well as ensure policy compliance. While working in Internal Affairs, Rand returned to Sam Houston State where he enrolled in the Master’s program ultimately earning a Master of Science in Criminal Justice Management in August 2007. In January 2008, Rand was selected to attend the prestigious FBI National Academy, graduating with Session #232. He completed the vaunted “Yellow Brick Road” physical challenge as well as 12 Master’s level college hours through the University of Virginia.

In August of 2009, Sheriff Gage promoted Rand to the rank of Captain where he was assigned as the manager of the Patrol Division overseeing 154 commissioned deputies, supervisors, and support staff. He was also tasked with managing specialized units such as the Regional Training Academy, Motorcycle Traffic Unit, K-9 Unit, Recruiting Unit, Basic Peace Officer Course, Crime Prevention, and Crime Stoppers. Rand was instrumental in bringing new technology, modern best practices for training, and a program focused on using statistical data to determine Patrol “hot spots” that were then addressed using community based and problem solving method approaches to reduce repeated reactive calls for service.

Rand was assigned to the Jail Division in 2013 as a Captain overseeing 292 civilian and commissioned employees, a budget of $36 million, and an inmate population of 1253 beds. Other specialized units that made up the command were the Bailiff Unit, Transport Unit, facility maintenance, central records, and courthouse security. Rand was regarded for bringing in a level of communication and leadership not previously seen in the Jail. He brought about facility improvement, used problem solving to improve operation efficiency and effectiveness, and used innovative means to combat a serious inmate overcrowding and employee understaffing problem.

Sheriff Gage returned Rand to his previous Patrol command in 2014. He has maintained his role as Academy Training Director since 2010, and he is an advocate for providing the best training available to all employees at the Sheriff’s Office and outside law enforcement agencies. While the Academy Director, Rand has overseen all levels of training including basic peace officer training, weapons and munitions training, in-service training, physical self-defense, and specialized law enforcement courses.

He has also held a prominent role in Emergency Management serving as Incident Commander during hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Ike. As incident commander during the 12 hour night shifts, he oversaw all operations for the county to include incident response, procurement of assets, and planning for events to come as well as addressing problems as they arose. He was selected to serve as the Law Enforcement Branch Commander and Public Information Officer during the Magnolia area wildfires of 2011. He has also served on anti-terrorism planning committees with the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) as well as criminal justice committees with the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC).

Rand has worked as an adjunct professor of Criminal Justice at both Lone Star College and at his alma mater, Sam Houston State. He has taught and inspired traditional college-age students as well as the older non-traditional student with many of them joining him at the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Other students have gone into all levels of law enforcement, corrections, and even enter law school.

Rand is actively involved in the community and is a member of the Conroe Noon Lion’s Club and is a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Conroe. Rand has been a continuous member of the Sam Houston State Alumni Association, the Leadership Command College Alumni Association, and the FBI National Academy Alumni Association. He is an annual supporter of the United Way of Montgomery County, Sam Houston State University, and the Edna Gladney Center for Adoption.
