Students visit HPD Headquarters

Students from the Barbara Jordan High School for Careers recently visited HPD Headquarters. The group is part of the City of Houston – Houston Pathfinders Immersion Initiative program.

These students were able to tour the HPD Museum curated by HPD Senior Police Officer James Chapman and tour the HPD Watch Command Center. The students were amazed by the history of HPD and hear about retired HPD Senior Police Officer, Mr. Edward Thomas and his 63 years of service.

The students were about to head back to school when Chief McClelland walked back into Travis and briefly talk with the students. The students were thrilled to meet the Chief and perhaps this brief encounter encourages a few of these students to pursue a career in law enforcement.
