Jesse willed be laid to rest today at 10:00am at the Grace Community Church. I ask for a moment of thought and prayer at that time. Our brother in blue and Houston neighbor died protecting others. No matter what color uniform or badge he wears, he is still family. Rest in peace my brother, rest in peace.

I would like to first point out that we have decreased the number of classes this fiscal year from seven classes (previous year) to two classes this year (March and May of 2010). In doing this the staff in recruiting has also been decreased and many of our officers and civilians have been relocated to different areas. Many of you have been in contact with these recruiters for some time now and as of today they are no longer here. PLEASE DO NOT WORRY. Your cases have been reassigned to the officers that are still here. This may cause a delay in your process, but since the next class is not until March 2010, we have plenty of time.
For those of you just now thinking about applying. I encourage you to apply online at http://www.hpdcareer.com/ and begin the process. We do not have a test up-front, so there is no need to wait to apply. Apply now. Although you apply online, it may take up to six weeks or longer before your interview. Be patient and stay positive.

The car agreed to go quietly, only after the good folks at the Planet Ford dealership agreed to give it a new paint job. The car will be proudly displayed in the lobby of Police Headquarters around the first of the year.
The HPD Museum would like to thank all the people who helped to make the refurbishment and the move possible...Nice Job!

On May 5, 2008, The Eagle Jewelry store was robbed of more than $500,000 and 655 pieces of jewelry. Sergeant Catherine Richards and Officer Steven Hendrie, who were assigned to the case, distributed media releases to help identify the suspects. A tip from Crime Stoppers identified two of the suspects. Sergeant Richards and Officer Hendrie arrested one of the suspects who later confessed and implicated additional suspects. Using cellular telephone technology, the officers determined the date, time and proximity of a second suspect to the jewelry store robbery. Arrest warrants were obtained and two other suspects were arrested and charged. The seven month investigation was labor intensive and technologically innovative. Due to the excellent and relentless work of these two officers the case was solved and the suspects were caught.

This video really has nothing to do with recruiting or HPD for that matter. After you become a police officer with Houston, we are mandated by the State of Texas to continue our training throughout the year, every year. Once a year during your birth month, you will attend at least forty hours of what we call "In Service Training". One of the teachers showed this video during a break. I was stunned, amazed and thoroughly impressed by this person. I just thought you would be impressed also. Enjoy.

I talk about the benefits and opportunities that come along with being a police officer all the time on this blog. The career path that you take in life could be boring and dull. I promise you that if you choose this career path, you will love your job. Every day is new and exciting. This video shows Tony Lepore, the Providence Dancing Cop as he does his thing on the corner of Weybosset and Dorrance Streets in downtown Providence. Do you think he loves his job?

I love the sneakers... (bonus gift if you also tell me what the nickname was for those sneakers)
Hint: They were NOT "Jordan's"!
