MEET MIKE

Mike comes from a FIVE generation Precinct One family 

Michael "Mike" Fulton has lived his entire life in Precinct One of Brazoria County.  Born in Angleton and raised in Richwood, Mike is a 4th generation, Brazoria County resident.  With his great grandparents moving to West 5th Street in Freeport around the early 1930's and his grandmother June and father Max moving close by on West 4th in 1944, Mike's love for the area started with his family fishing Christmas Bay in their bay house located in Churchill Bayou.  Mike's father worked at DOW while Mike's mother, Kaye, retired as a teacher from BISD.  Having servant leadership instilled in her by the Fulton family, Mike's only sibling, his sister, Traci is currently a BISD teacher as well as a College educator at Brazosport College.  

Graduating from the Houston Community College Police Academy in 1993, Mike went back home and started his law enforcement career in his hometown of Richwood.  A short time later, he made the move to the Brazoria County Sheriff's Department where he was assigned to the jail division.  In the Summer of 1995, Mike was promoted to a Crime Scene Investigator within the Identification Division and it was here under the leadership of Sheriff Joe King, Mike found his passion in Law Enforcement...Photography, Forensics and most importantly Leadership.

Shortly after 9/11 Mike made another career move and was hired by Missouri City Police Department to run their Forensic Division.  After being named Kodak Photographer to Watch in the World in 2005, Mike left law enforcement to travel the world capturing high end photography events.  It was during this time Mike found his passion for teaching professional photographers around the world, and it just so happened during one of his events, Mike met his wife, Suzy.  After a few years of long distance dating and quite a bit of convincing, Mike was able to persuade Suzy to to move from Las Vegas, Nevada to Lake Jackson, Texas.  In 2015, they were blessed with identical twin daughters, Zoey and Kimber, making Mike's oldest daughter, Meghan a big sister.  

 

With healthcare issues on the rise, Mike took the opportunity to go back into law enforcement by running the Crime Scene Unit at the Stafford Police Department just outside of Houston, Texas.  After being named Employee of the Year for two years straight, with proven leadership skills, Mike had the opportunity to run one of the largest cities in the United States.  Hired to be the Supervisor over the Crime Scene Unit for the Houston Forensic Science Center, Mike supervised and led approximately 665 square miles and oversaw the safety for 2.4 million people. It was here where Mike saw first hand what bad politicians and horrible elections can do to a city.  Where egos of those in office were greater than the people being killed in the streets.  Understanding the political arena was changing, and not for the better, in January 2021 Mike made his professional full circle back home to Brazoria County, when he was hired as Chief Deputy of Brazoria County Constable's Office.   Currently employed in this position, Mike, is still challenging himself every day learning more of the Civil Process under an extremely experienced veteran Constable.

Mike has continually volunteered his time to servant leadership organizations both local and abroad.  With his love for his community and the animals within them, Mike is a proud past Board of Director for the Brazoria County SPCA.  A past Board of Director for the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), as well as donating his photography talents and time to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS), an organization whose mission is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with a free gift of professional portraiture.
