Wrong Car?

The other day one of our officers was on the freeway writing tickets when he noticed a red sports car doing 108 mph in a 65mph zone. The officer pulled the speeder over in order to write him a ticket. The speeder was adamant that the officer had pulled over the wrong car and didn't think he deserved a ticket. After listening to the gentleman's excuse and explanation, the officer starting doubting himself as to if he had really pulled over the right car. The officer was about to apologize to the gentleman and send him on his way until he noticed something in the back seat of the car...

This story is pure fiction. Any similarities to a person or place is strictly coincidental and actually, ... quite shocking.

how do i know if i "have what it takes" to be a police officer? i am 25/f, psychology and sociology major grad from U of H. i really wanted to go into social work, but i'm too sensitive to see heartbreaking things happen to victims. i want to make a positive connection with my community, instead of being anoymous and not impacting my favorite city! -taylor

Hello Taylor,

After six months of intense training at our Police Academy, I promise you will graduate with a new found sense of attitude and the knowledge to handle any situation. There are so many opportunities to move around in a city as large as Houston and our department that you will find your calling and will make a difference in the city you love. Email me if you would like to talk further. I would also be happy to meet with you in person up here in Recruiting at 1200 Travis.

Hi, I was wondering how well you deal with people from out of state, job wise. I'm a 21/m Law Enforcement and Justice Administration Major and Economics minor from Western Illinois University. I recieved an e-mail about the department and it immeadiately became a viable option. My brother just started his masters program at Texas A&M and he absolutely loves it down there. I would love to see for myself if Houston is the right place for me. Luke

Hello Luke,

Thanks for you interest with HPD. We would love to have you apply. Out of town applicant's are handled similar to in town applicants. Basically you apply online at hpdcareer.com and start the process. A recruiter will call you in a few days and set up an appointment for you. You will need about four days to complete the process. The recruiter will work out the logistics for you. I hope this helps. Feel free to email me at officermccoy@gmail if you have further questions.
