I Want You! (for my Question and Answer Session)

I have a date and time! This Saturday (November 1, 2008) at 10:00am I will be holding an informal question and answer session. This will be your chance to ask me questions about what it is like to be a policeman in Houston. I will give you tips on becoming a better applicant, what to expect, how the application process works, what kind of questions that could come up during your interview, a walk through of the physical agility test and anything else you can think of. It will be fun and informative. Dress casual as this will be informal with an open question and answer forum. I want you to make the right choice in becoming one of Houston's finest. I will answer questions as a group and one on one. Even if you are already in the process or you want to start the process, I will be happy to help you out. You are welcome to leave whenever you like but I would appreciate everyone arriving at 10:00am. The address is 1200 Travis Street, Houston, Texas 77002. The recruiting unit is on the 13th floor. Please email me if you would like to attend @ officermccoy@gmail.com . This will be fun and I am looking forward to it! See you Saturday!

Thanks for having me at the Q&A on Saturday. I'm from New York and in the final steps of the process with HPD. Before this I handled federal background investigations. What you said about Houston Police having something for everyone is most definitely true - there are just so many specialized units and assignments that keep the job exciting for people like me who like the variety in work assignments (I'm ultimately interested in being involved with computer crimes). While some other large departments offer the same thing, when you combine it with the professionalism and high standards exuded by those I've met at Houston PD and the great cost of living in the Houston Area, I would not choose any other place. It was a pleasure meeting everyone and having Officer Herb there to give us some insight into the job. Hopefully I'll be seeing some of you at Roll call in December!
