The District Five Patrol area is located in the northwestern portion of Montgomery County and encompasses approximately 382 square miles. According to the 2010 Census, the population for the unincorporated area of District 5 is 38,796.
The demographics of the district are diverse and unique. There are numerous Lake Conroe waterfront communities along the lake, extensive commercial developments, rural farm and ranch operations in the outer lying areas and even a large portion of the Sam Houston National Forest are included in the bounds of District Five.
The challenges of providing law enforcement services to this vast area of diversification are met by the District Five personnel led by District Commander Lieutenant Gary L. Welch which includes one District Secretary, four Senior Sergeants and twenty Deputies. Two of these Deputies are assigned under contract to the Walden on Lake Conroe Subdivision.
The Criminal Investigation Division (CID) also has three Detectives assigned to the District Five area and operates from the same facility.
This close working relationship between Patrol and CID has proven to be a successful combination in the prosecution of many criminal cases.
In our endeavors to provide the highest level of service possible to our community we encourage citizen involvement and welcome any questions or comments that may be of concern
