HPD "Car Guy"

Houston police 'car guy' fixing up vintage cruisers

Officer Jason Knox may be the one behind the wheel, but his Oilers-blue cruiser is the real celebrity. Selfies, thumbs up and lookie-loos greet the handy Houston police car aficionado everywhere he goes in the law enforcement version of the 1996 Chevrolet Caprice he patched up to patrol the streets of Space City just like they used to.

South Central Patrol Appreciation Potluck




South Central Patrol Division would like to express our gratitude for your consistency, commitment, and support of the Houston Police Departments efforts.

It is because of you, our community stakeholders, that we are successful and striving to further serve and protect you. We cannot be as successful as we are without your cooperation and willingness to enable and assist us on our path of providing a safe community.

The Potluck was a huge success with great food, fellowship, and family! We would like to extend our thanks to Mr. Bruce Bacon, who held the position on the Board as President, for being so faithful and committed to the position, but wanted to give someone else the opportunity to experience leadership over such an amazing group. With that being said, thank you to our newest President Mr. Kevin Campbell! We all know this program would not be successful without the backbone(s) our reigning Vice President and Secretary Joyce Drew and Kim Gibson. Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!

Thanksgiving at Central Patrol



On November 16th, the Central Patrol Station hosted a Thanksgiving Food Drive. Because of the support received from our local schools and businesses, we were able to positively impact the lives of 62 families by providing them with turkeys and other goods.

Moving forward, the feedback that was provided will help us continue grow and improve upon this event. Attached are a few photos from the Thanksgiving Food Drive. Enjoy!

Ultimately, none of this would be possible without the help and support of the following: Administration: Captain T. Guinn-Shaver, Lt. C. Davis, Lt. C. Southwell, Sgt. J. Roque, Sgt. C. Wall, Sgt. M Arroyo, and Sgt S. Pham Contributors: State Representative Jessica Farrar, Eddie Carranco & the North Central Civic Association, Doug Griffith with HPOU, Central Patrol, Avenue CDC, Greater Northside Management District, Jeanette R., and H-E-B.

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!
