Many of you may not know this but we have a very nice museum located inside the Houston Police Academy at 17000 Aldine Westfield, which is open to the public. For more information please click on this link: http://www.houstontx.gov/police/museum/
Senior Officer James Chapman does a fantastic job running the museum and came across a very old audio recording talking about of all things, recruiting! He was able to save the audio after hours of adjustments and audio cleaning. This clip is about 12 minutes long, but you need to watch it. Frankly, many things have not changed as far as the recruiting process goes. It's worth a look and fun to see how the city has grown. Hard to determine the exact date, but it was probably from the 1950's.
