Some people ask me why they should join the Houston Police Department instead of a different, maybe smaller department. With a large department like HPD, you can find your niche here. Whatever you are good at, whatever you like, whatever your hobbies are, there is sure to be something within the Houston Police Department that will fit YOU. Whether it be patrol (I loved by the way), homicide, horses, computers, bikes, etc... you get the picture, you have the opportunities to explore within HPD. Everyday is different. One day you may catch a thief, the next day you may return a lost child to her mother. Each day will give you the chance to make a difference.
How many careers give you that chance?
