Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day

Today is “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.”  The special event gives children the opportunity to go to work with a parent and aims to introduce children to the workplace, while empowering them to think imaginatively about their family, work and community.

In addition to the nuances of dispatch, the children of our employees of the Emergency Communication Division were treated to many of HPD's specialized divisions and units such as K9 and Air Support.

Once again our officers spent time at Memorial Hermann Children’s Hospital and gave bears to pediatric patients. The Badges and Bears program hopes to help brighten the day of some of the sick children who are at the hospital.

The officers not only handed out stuffed animals, but also chatted with them and, this month, held a dance party.
