Serve your Country, Protect our City

Click Play Above

What is a hero? The dictionary describes a hero as a man or woman of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his or her brave deeds and noble qualities. Many fans of this blog are in the military. They are fighting the war on terror at home and abroad. I receive several emails on a daily basis about what it takes to become a police officer once their service to our country is completed. On occasion, a blog reader will send me pictures or videos. This particular video amazed me. Whether you are serving your country while in the military or protecting your city as a police officer, this is one hero you need to know about. To our military friends and fans of HPD, you are all heroes to us and we invite you to consider becoming heroes for Houston. This post is not to say that we prefer military individuals over non-military, it is only an observation about what it takes to become a hero. The military is not for everyone. I personally never served in the military, but I have served this city as a police officer since I was 19 years old. For those of you who want to make a difference everyday right here in our backyard as a police officer, military or not, we invite you to make a difference with the Houston Police Department.
