Westside Officers Help Save Christmas for one Family

On December 20, Houston Police Department Westside officers responded to a burglary in the 8700 block of Leawood.  When they arrived they met Ms. Guillory,  who stated she came home to a broken window and all her Christmas presents for her grandson stolen.  There was wrapping paper on floor and it appeared the suspects had unwrapped the gifts before they stole them.  The suspects also went upstairs in Ms. Guillory’s townhouse and stole several pieces of jewelry she owned.

Mr. Guillory stated that the presents were for her grandson and she had spent all of her money to buy him the presents, mostly clothes that he needed.  The officers were touched and wanted to do something to assist Guillory.  They pooled their money and asked for additional help from other Westside officers.  They collected enough money to be able to present Ms. Guillory with a gift card to replace all the Christmas presents!

"Helpers and Heroes" at Target

First City Wide Positive Interaction Program Meeting of 2017

Shop with a Cop; Shop with a Jock

Recently, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, members of the Houston Police Department, the Harris County Sheriff's Office and Target Superstore held the annual "Shop with a Cop, Shop with a Jock" holiday event.  

The holiday "extravaganza" took place at the Target Superstore on South Main Street.  

Forty pre-selected individuals participated in an hour-long event that includes a 10-minute shopping spree and celebrity guest appearances with current and retired professional athletes.  

During the holiday season, it becomes harder for low income and disadvantaged kids whose parents are struggling to find monetary opportunities to purchase gifts. “Shop with a Cop, Shop with Jock” allows kids to “Live in the Moment” and enjoy the holiday celebration.

911 Heroes Run Donations

From the Houston 911 Heroes Run Race Director Captain Greg Fremin:

Last week at our monthly HPOU Luncheon, I was honored to present on behalf of the Travis Manion Foundation our 911 Heroes Run Charitable Benefactors checks to Assist the Officer and the Houston Professional Firefighters Local 341.
I've been the Houston 911 Heroes Run Race Director for the last 6 years and all the work that goes into this event makes this moment extremely special. 50% of our total race proceeds come back to Houston to assist our men and women in uniform. 

A special thanks to Doug Griffith and the HPOU for their unyielding support. Too many others to thank for their assistance, but in the end, the event allows us to honor the sacrifices of the victims of 911 and the wars since...
