HPD, Houston Police Officer's Union, and Community Join Together

HPD played a friendly game of basketball this weekend with ministers and members of the community for a good cause.

The competition was friendly, but the overall message was important. In addition to fostering community relationships, with the help of the Houston Police Officers Union, new back to school supplies were provided to children in the community.

In addition, kids enjoyed Kona Ice on a hot summer day as they got ready for the first day of school.


The event was a success. Thank you to the HPOU and Pastor Carlos Miller, who organized this event and hopes to make this a yearly thing.

South Central Patrol Holds Its First Back to School Event

South Central Patrol organized and celebrated its first back to school event this past weekend called "Kidz 'n Kopz." 

School supplies and uniforms were donated and given to students as they prepare for the first day of school. 

Because officers know looking good helps to feeling good, free hairs cuts were also provided.

This was a great event for officers to interact with the community.
