Jailer Thomas Douglas suffered a fatal heart attack while participating in a required training run.

Cadet Douglas was participating in required physical training exercises at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Training Academy in Humble, Texas. During the training exercises Cadet Douglas suddenly collapsed to the ground.

At approximately 8:00pm Cadet Douglas failed to respond to medical assistance and was pronounced dead.

He received his temporary Texas State Jailers License and was assigned to work in the Harris County Jail. On March 2, 2004 he was selected to receive his certification training as a Cadet in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Academy
