The Houston Police Department Motorcycle Detail better known as “SOLO Detail” was established in 1909 to address the growing traffic concerns in downtown Houston.
Officers for this detail are selected when an opening occurs and they must possess a valid Texas Class M license, have excellent work and attendance history with a minimum of two years experience as an officer. Furthermore, they must have a willingness to work flexible hours and shifts in inclement weather. Applicants must also pass a riding evaluation to demonstrate their ability to operate a motorcycle over a course designed to evaluate basic motorcycle riding skills.
This is just one of the many opportunities you have when you become part of the HPD Family.
