Joe Barton, who passed away earlier this month after serving as constable for 26 years.

Prior to that he was the Chief Deputy Constable for Dallas County Precinct 3 for 18 years, from which he was retired at the time of his appointment by Constable Barton. In total, Constable Edwards has almost 40 years of law enforcement experience.
