Keeping Our Trails Safe
District K adds ATV to HPD Fleet

It was standing room only at the January 28th HPD PIP meeting as I made our big announcement. It’s a new year and I enjoyed reviewing our 2019 successes and setting our safety goals for 2020. District K remains the 3rd safest district in the City of Houston, but of course we are striving to be number 1. Check out the newest addition to the HPD fleet. The District K office purchased an ATV for the officers to patrol our new trails throughout the district. We want to ensure our residents are safe on our streets as well as on our trails. Grab your walking shoes and a friend and we’ll see you out there. The next next PIP meeting in Feb 25th. Hope to see you there.
