Run With Your Recruiter - TOMORROW

Please join us tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. at Memorial Park (6501 Memorial Dr. Houston, TX 77007-7021) for “Run With Your Recruiter.”  Officers will walk you through the physical agility test so that you will be better prepared to succeed in the hiring process.  This will give you the opportunity to practice this test without your scores being recorded by HPD.  It is designed solely for your benefit.  Officers will also be available to address any additional questions.

Please wear appropriate jogging attire. Also, bring a towel and plenty of water for yourself. We will start promptly at 6:30 am at the quarter mile track in front of the tennis courts at Memorial Park. The Event should take no more than two hours. If you have any additional questions regarding this run, please feel free to call us at 713-308-1300 or go to
