Thank you, Mattress Mack!

Injured Houston police officer credits 'Mattress Mack' for helping his recovery

HOUSTON - Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale of Gallery Furniture knows a thing or two about recliners. He also knows how to help Houstonians. The latest is a Houston Police Officer injured in the line of duty. Officer Chayne Brothers is doing a lot better but it's been a tough road.

Great Community Involvement to Support an Officer in Need

Jerry Flores took care of the Astros. Now they're rallying around him.

The text messages, calls and get-well cards started arriving from all corners of Major League Baseball by early in the morning of April 13, less than 24 hours after beloved Houston police officer Jerry Flores suffered a devastating skull fracture in a fluke fall off the back of a golf cart.

Southeast Community Comes Together to Help a Resident in Need




Officers from Southeast Patrol met Ms. Fields when she came into the Southeast Command Station with an issue. After helping her, Sgt. Cloud handed her his business card and invited her to community meetings.

She told him that her home was damaged during Hurricane Harvey and she was waiting on repairs. He offered to assist her if she ever needed anything. She called this week to tell him that she was able to get an air conditioner unit, but she did not have anyone to install it.  That is when Sgt. Cloud told her the community service officers would come out to help.  

Along with the help of carpenter Mr. Billy, the Southeast officers stepped in to help Ms. Fields get the air conditioning unit installed properly. Pictured are Ms. Fields, Mr. Billy, Officer Winn, Lt. Carey, and Sgt. Cloud. Great work by the community in Southeast Houston!

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.
