Eastside Positive Interaction Program

HPD Officers at IPC Hebron Houston

"Dear HPD Team,

Thank you very much for going out of your way to make our ‘Be A Hero’ event memorable and successful. Our Church Members and our Kids enjoyed their time to interact with our Everyday Heroes and to hear their stories first-hand. We look up to our HPD Officers who go out of their way to keep our communities safe for all our citizens.

A special thank you to Officer D. Silva, Officer A. Vaughn, Officer J. Saloana, Officer V. Smith, Officer L. Avila for coming out to our church. They answered all the questions our kids had and showed their HPD units. The kids had a blast!! They also participated in our BloodDrive and donated blood. Y’all are great role models for all of us. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you for everything you do for us. Be safe!!"

Daughter of fallen officer marries at HPD police memorial

HPD officer tows car and buys tires for mom

Madison Williams can't help but cry when talking about what a Houston police officer did for her. "You don't expect people to be that nice," Williams said. Williams and her 4-year-old daughter were locked in a motel bathroom and hiding from a man attempting to harm her.
