Today, cadet class 234 took part in the cultural diversity tour of Houston. This tour is part of the department’s long-standing commitment to community policing and is designed to expose police cadets to the variety of cultures found in the City of Houston.
During the all-day tour, cadets will meet with guides from the Acres Homes, Montrose, Meyerland, Westside, Southwest, and Eastside communities. At each stop, a guide will instruct cadets on the history, culture and socioeconomics of their specific community. In addition, the guide will explain how community members perceive the police. Following this 30 minute instruction and subsequent question and answer period, the guide will board the bus with cadets for a brief tour of the community.
