    About Constable Clint Burgess

    Constable Clint Burgess is a life-long resident of Tarrant County and has lived in Mansfield for the past 30 years. He is a graduate of Mansfield High School. After high school he entered into the U.S. Air Force and served for a period of four years. Clint was an Air Surveillance Operator on the AWACS plane and assigned to the 965 AWACS Squadron at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Clint served three tours in Saudi Arabia and two in Turkey to maintain surveillance of Iraq after Desert Storm. Clint also worked in cooperation with the D.E.A., US. Customs and the U.S. Coast Guard on counter-drug missions out of Panama and the CONUS United States. While in the Air Force, Clint was able to visit 21 countries and 41 different states. Clint's desire to be a police officer was greater than staying in the Air Force and he began to look at opportunies in law enforcement. Clint had an opportunity to join the Oklahoma Capital Patrol (division of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol) but made the choice to return to Texas in 1997. Clint came back home to Mansfield, and started the police academy at Tarrant County College one month later.
