Mark C. Brown

Investigator Mark Brown died after contracting COVID-19 during a presumed exposure while on duty.

He had been assigned to protest marches, COVID testing sites, and food giveaways during the pandemic.

Investigator Brown had served with the Harris County Constable's Office Precinct 5 for three years and had served in law enforcement for 23 years. He had previously served with the Hempstead Police Department and the Spring Branch Independent School District Police Department. He is survived by his wife and four children.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
