Captain Dan Harris of Houston Police Department’s Vice Division and Chief Vera Bumpers of the Metro Police Department received a Mayor’s Proclamations to honor their contribution toward providing public service during the September 27, 2016, City Council Meeting. They are flanked by Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Temp Ellen Cohen and Councilwoman Brenda Stardig, the Chairwoman of Houston City Council’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee.
Captain Dan Harris has served with the Houston Police Department for 22 years and supervises the Vice Division, charged with conducting human trafficking investigations. Chief Bumpers has served with Metro Police Department for 32 years, rising through the ranks to become that Department’s first Black female Chief of Police. Both stated that they could not have achieved any success except for the efforts of the fine men and women serving in each organization.
HPD visited patients at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital earlier this week spreading cheer and give away bears. The Badges and Bears program is in its 3rd year. The officers also participated in different activities with the patients, such as board games and coloring books.
