EXPERIENCED. CONSERVATIVE. TEXAN.
Constable Chad Norvell is a Marine Corps Veteran with over 30 years of law enforcement service experience in Ft. Bend County. He's a proven fiscal conservative who's running for re-election to continue applying his decades of law enforcement experience and fiscally conservative management principles at the Fort Bend Precinct One’s Constable’s Office. He believes elected officials should always operate their offices with our tax dollars in mind.
Chad's law enforcement service began in 1993 at the Stafford Police Department. In 1996, he joined the Sugar Land Police Department where he was active in the community helping parents learn how to properly install their child's safety seat. He has a passion for child safety and helping ensure parents properly secure their child's seat. He has spoken at child passenger safety workshops across the country as well as in Heidelberg, Germany and Aviano, Italy.
In 2004, after eight years with Sugar Land PD, Chad went to serve as Chief Deputy for newly elected Ft. Bend Pct 4 Constable Troy Nehls. In 2008, when Constable Nehls was deployed with the US Army to Afghanistan, Chad was appointed "acting Constable" by the Fort Bend County Commissioner's Court. In 2012, when Troy Nehls was elected Ft. Bend County Sheriff, he chose Chad to serve as a Major at the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, overseeing media relations, social media, and criminal investigations. In 2020, Chad ran for Constable and won a three-way Republican primary without a runoff; he comfortably won the general election and was sworn in as Constable in January 2021. Chad is now seeking re-election to a second term as Constable in the 2024 Republican primary.
Chad has lived in the Katy-area for over 25 years. His sons, Brandon and Cody, both attended Katy ISD schools for their education. As an active parent, Chad frequently volunteered at their schools helping on field trips, teaching Junior Achievement, serving on Campus Advisory Teams, and completing the "Leadership KISD" program; he was also appointed as a community member to Katy ISD's Bond Advisory Committee. Chad was the driving force behind the Ft. Bend County Sheriff's Office participation in the annual forensic science program at the Shaw STEAM Center, a hands-on program that hundreds of students participate in.
Chad has a bachelor's in Organizational Leadership from Mountain State University and is a graduate of the prestigious Police Staff and Command College at Northwestern University. He and his family live in Simonton.
