June 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Mayor Turner is scheduled to attend this meeting. Please keep in mind, if an event shall occur that requires the Mayor’s attention and/or presence, we will have to reschedule. Please make arrangements to arrive early. If there is a question you would like to ask the Mayor, please send the question to HPD Officer E. J Reyes. All questions must be submitted by Tuesday, June 13th, 2017. Please keep in mind, depending on the number of questions received, all questions may not be answered. We would appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this implementation. At the evening of the meeting, Officer Reyes will read the question to the Mayor and acknowledge who submitted the question; so, the Mayor can answer the question to that individual.
Midtown stakeholders living on the east side of Louisiana Street are encouraged to attend the monthly HPD PIP to meet your division captain and patrolling officers.
A police agency can be very confusing to most citizens. The Positive Interaction Program holds monthly PIP meetings featuring speakers from different divisions (Burglary and Theft, Homicide, K-9, Helicopters, etc.) explaining how their division operates. This is done so citizens will know what to expect, should they ever need the police. The department was not sure how citizens would react to coming to a police station once a month for a presentation on a different division. So, the Positive Interaction Program was started as a pilot project in only one police station to begin with. The Program has proven to be an overwhelming success.
