Fresh Start

Class 196 is patrolling our streets as you read this blog. They will be working various shifts throughout the next training phase. They are riding with veterans who are teaching them the ropes. One day, they too, will become veterans of the Houston Police Department. These young men and women have stepped up to the challenge to make a positive change in our community.

Can't wait for 2009 to come along so I can apply and join the Houston Police department.

Me either! I plan to apply and join in 2009 after I complete my degree in Homeland Security! I do have a question how long on average is the probationary officer period?

You are on probation for one year from the start of your first day in the acacdemy. Good Luck and we are looking forward to having you onboard!
