On July 23, 2008 Chief Harold L. Hurtt created the Marine Unit by combining and expanding the two existing maritime operations (Dive Team and Lake Patrol) into one unified Marine Unit under the command of the Tactical Operations Division. The merging of the assets and capabilities of those two units is intended to enhance the effectiveness and professionalism of the department’s maritime response.
The Houston Police Department places the greatest emphasis on the safety of its officers and the operational efficiency of its units. By providing its officers with the best possible equipment, training and support, the department ensures that each unit is prepared to meet the challenges facing them.
