Comfort Cases


HPD Officers visited the Chimney Rock Center to donate Comfort Cases. These cases contain toothbrushes, blankets, teddy bears, socks, books, and other items. The children at the Chimney Rock Center are often displaced for various reasons, and these cases give them something they can call their own. Every child deserves to know that they matter! 

HPD and Special Olympics



Officer Tracie Mathews – Segura assigned to the South Central Patrol Station was selected to be the Texas law enforcement representative in Seattle, Washington for the 2018 USA Special Olympics Games. Officer Mathews – Segura was also a Final Leg Torch Runner for the Law Enforcement Torch Run. HPD Captain Kristine Anthony, commander over the Training Division, was also present to cheer on our Texas athletes.

The Special Olympics USA Games were held at Husky Stadium.

From Officer Mathews – Segura: “Several years ago I found myself disappointed in myself, for not making the difference I had sought out to do when I joined Law Enforcement, I felt like I had failed. Then entered Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. I have met so many extraordinary men and women who we see compete and call themselves Special Olympic Athletes, and who I am blessed to call my friends.”

Congratulations to all of the Special Olympics Athletes who represented Texas in Seattle.

HPD Boxing


“The goal of the Houston Police Department boxing association is to promote the physical, mental and academic prosperity of the youth in the community. The HPD boxing association is a proponent in the belief of the importance of mentoring the youth, many of whom face disproportionate risks and challenges. At every possible opportunity, the officers nurture a relationship with the youth to develop trust and cooperation through an unceasing commitment to the community in which we serve.

The mission of the HPD boxing association is to provide community centered activities that help at-risk youth in the second ward/ east end community, and create techniques to help negotiate the daily stressors and life experiences in a positive manner. The boxing association will be partnering with The Knockout Factory East End to develop a youth boxing organization. Through athletics, mentorship and intervention, the partnership between the two organizations will create a youth program that will develop positive, productive and prosperous members of our community.”


Join us for Battle of the Badges on September 14, 2018 at the Humble Civic Center, 8233 Will Clayton Parkway, Humble, TX 77338. All proceeds will go towards Knockout Factory to help pay for their participation in the boxing program, and Assist the Officer, and Assist the Firefighter.
