Experience & Background

Constable Beth Villarreal has been a long time resident Oak Cliff and raised her children in Dallas. She is a mother of four and grandmother of two. Constable Villarreal currently has a son serving in the United States Army and a nephew serving in the United States Air force. She is married to a fellow law enforcement officer. Her son recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq.

Constable Villarreal grew up in a family of 8 in South Texas. She along with her siblings were forced to labor as farm workers at the age of 5 due to a poor economic environment. Beth is a survivor of Domestic Violence and a survivor of Bullying. At the age of 13 she was forced to leave home with only $5 in her pocket. She overcame many obstacles and challenges of being a young and at one time single mother. She put herself through school, college and eventually the Police academy.

At the age of 38, she became the first elected female Latina Constable in Dallas County, TX. Although facing many obstacles as a double minority by being a Latina and a female, the challenges she faced in order to achieve her goals and accomplish her mission were and remain worth it.

Constable Villarreal is a regular speaker as an Anti-Bullying and Domestic Violence representative.

She currently sits on the Cedar Valley Police Academy Advisory Board and recently on the SBDM Committee for Sunset High School.

Constable Villarreal has been invited to speak at Go Run Dallas. The White House Project “Go Run” is inspired by women leaders to share and offer insight, equip and inform women from all walks of life to lead more effectively in their work, in their community and in politics.

She has been a contributing writer to DFW Weekly where she shared important safety tips and awareness when it comes to personal and community safety awareness, and to Show Scene Magazine where she shared insight and education as it relates to content material.

Beth speaks at local churches to encourage young women to pursue their dreams and goals. Beth has also spoken at local elementary schools on Career Day and about Safety Awareness. Her community organizing as a representative of her current department, and her corporate management skills have equipped her well to lead the Precinct 5 Constable’s office.
