Run with your Recruiter



Click Play Above

This past Saturday we completed our inaugural "Run with your Recruiter" campaign. Police applicants for Academy Class 211 met with recruiters at Memorial Park to begin their journey to becoming "Houston's Finest."

We ran them through the mile and a half run, 300 meter run, push ups and agility tests. It was hard for some and easy for others. It was a chance to talk and meet some of the academy staff as well as speak with veteran officers about what to expect in the upcoming months at the police academy. There were even a handful of current cadets from class 210 on hand to meet and exchange ideas and tips for being a better cadet.

Remember, if you struggled on Saturday, this was just a taste of what to expect when the academy starts. You still have some time, start running and doing push ups NOW!

It was a great opportunity to find out where I am and where I want to be. Many thanks to the recruiters for helping me frame my motivation to train harder.

Everyone looked great! I like that the classmates are meeting each other before the class starts. Their friendships will be even stronger. The cadre and Hr personnel looked great to. Great idea to do this. Sgt. Brown was leading from the front as always! Greata times I bet.

I speak from experience, it will get HARDER! Just keep reminding yourself why you're doing it and you will prevail.
