New HPD officers hoping to change police image in the community

New HPD officers hoping to change police image in the community

HOUSTON - A new class of Houston Police officers graduated from the academy aiming to change any negative image of peace officers in their community. Forget, for the moment, whatever scrutiny rains on police these days. The Houston Police Academy remains an umbrella to some.

More than 100 officers and civilians were honored by the Houston Police Department Tuesday for going above and beyond the call of duty. "They showed bravery, they showed compassion, and they showed excellence," said interim police chief Martha Montalvo.

Thank you!

Earlier this week, the HPD Honor Guard provided funeral services for retired HPD Executive Assistant Chief Wilfred Navarro.  Afterwards, the Honor Guard members stopped at the Saltgrass Steak House on the Katy Freeway, where an anonymous person picked up the tab for the group; It is unknown if it was the restaurant or an individual who provided the show of generosity.

The gesture was definitely appreciated. Thank you!
