On Thursday, December 21, 2017, members of the Youth Police Advisory Council (YPAC), along with the Houston Police Department's Community Outreach Unit, hosted a Christmas social and gift-giving event for disadvantaged senior citizens.
The special Christmas party was held at the J.W. Peavey Multi-service Center, where senior citizens gathered to find a surprise holiday celebration, complete with food, games, and gifts.
YPAC fosters communication and trust between the HPD and area youth. Since 1997, the council has provided a forum where a diverse, volunteer group of high school teenagers meet with the Chief of Police, other police officials and adult mentors to share and discuss issues of importance to Houston's youth, with an emphasis on law enforcement topics.
