Mark Christopher 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, due to the requirements of their job, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the United States contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic. Hundreds of law enforcement officers died from medical complications as a result of contracting the virus while remaining on duty and interacting with the community.

I never met Investigator Brown. But this year I participated in the Pennsylvania division of the LEU (Law Enforcement United) bike ride. I had the privilege of wearing a bracket honoring Investigator Brown as part of the ride team. My heartfelt condolences to his family. Sir, thank you for your service.
