Officers in Action


Recently, Senior Police Officer T. Hawkins a 27 year veteran of HPD was on patrol when she received a call regarding three suspicious males lurking near a residence. She quickly arrived at the location, parked her patrol car out of sight and began a search on foot for the three males. During the search she began looking through the fences and observed three males coming out through the back window of a home that they had just burglarized.

Officer Hawkins immediately requested back-up and broadcasted the description of the suspects as they fled on foot. Officer Hawkins jumped into action and quickly located the suspects running down the street and was able to detain all three of them at first. As she was handcuffing two of the suspects, the third one ran away. However, by this time other patrol units and a K-9 unit began to arrive to help Officer Hawkins out. They quickly located the third suspect and he was arrested without incident.

All the stolen property was recovered and returned to the victim. Charges were filed on all three suspects.

The skill in which this veteran officer accomplished her duties reflects great credit upon herself and the Houston Police Department. HPD would like to commend Senior Police Officer Hawkins for getting three more crooks off the street and a job well done.
