This past weekend, four officers assigned to our Southwest Patrol Station night shift saw four people sleeping behind a business. Upon investigating, the officers found two adult women and their two young children, ages 6 and 7. The women said they lost their homes during Hurricane Harvey and had no place to stay.
Officers Taylor, Ramos, Tsai and Matthew (pictured left to right) drove the women and children to a nearby hotel, pooled their money and paid for the families to get a room for a few nights to get them to a safe haven. We thank these officers for their compassion and willingness to help our fellow citizens in need #communitypolicing

HPD Assistant Chief Lori Bender and the North Belt Division Captain D. Edwards thanked the Austin Management Group today for their donation of temporary office space for the newly-formed division.
The idea to form the North Belt Division began in March of 2017. The belief was that a division within the Greenspoint area could better serve the citizens who live there.
The location of these temporary officers for the North Belt Patrol Division proved critical during Hurricane Harvey when this area flooded. Officers, including Chief Art Acevedo, were able to conduct rescues during the height of the storm and have a place to come back to that was close to the area.
Thank you, members of the Austin Management Group, for supporting HPD!
Officers from the South Gessner Patrol station came up with the idea last week of giving away free turkeys to citizens as a way to give back to the community seeing as there were many residents in the area who lost a lot during Hurricane Harvey.
South Gessner commanders, along with State Representative Gene Wu and Richard Rodriguez from the Brays Oaks Management District graciously donated funds to purchase 52 turkeys to distribute.
Turkeys with picked up early this morning through collaboration with Fiesta. South Gessner officers conducted traffic stops and pedestrian encounters at various affected apartment complexes and areas around Southwest Houston and distributed the turkeys.
