Constable Silvia Trevino is a 37-Year Law Enforcement Officer with a Master Peace Officer Certification.
Constable Silvia Trevino has a deep-rooted commitment to serving her community. She is a second-generation Precinct 6 home-grown Houstonian who was born in her Precinct’s historical neighborhood known as “El Crisol.” She was raised in the Precinct’s Northside community, and she is a proud graduate from HISD’s Jeff Davis High School. Shortly after graduation, Silvia married the love of her life Victor Trevino. They have three wonderful children and six precious grandchildren. Silvia and Victor settled in the Precinct’s East End where they have resided for nearly 40 years.
In 1983, Silvia decided she wanted to join the police force and became a Houston Police Officer. In a class of 70 cadets, Silvia was one of only 6 females who graduated from the Houston Police Academy. She spent 16 years patrolling the streets of Houston, and 5 years serving as one of HPD’s Public Information Officers. Silvia retired from the Houston Police Department after serving 21 years with Honor.
After retiring from HPD, she was equally proud and honored to serve as a Lieutenant for Harris County’s Precinct 7 for 8 ½ years. She was the only female in an all-male Command Staff and retired from Harris County in 2013.
Silvia’s passion is God, her family, her community, and law enforcement. These passions have brought her to where she is today. Silvia wanted to continue serving her community but in a different capacity. She came out of retirement and ran for Harris County Constable where she won without a runoff against five male opponents in the 2016 Primary election with 53% of the votes! In the 2016 General Election, Silvia WON overwhelmingly with 77% of the votes. Silvia Trevino made history by becoming the first Latina Constable in Harris County; the 3rd largest county in the U.S. But even more importantly, Constable Silvia Trevino became the first “Grandma” Constable in Harris County.
In 2020, Constable Silvia Trevino won her Re-election with a resounding 77% of the votes and continues to serve with Honor in her second term as Harris County Constable.
