Police Chief invites all Houstonians to town hall meeting

By | January 9, 2015

Houston Police Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr. is asking you to mark your calendars for an HPD Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, February 7.

The Chief is inviting you and your neighbors to meet with him and top HPD commanders at the HPD Citywide Town Hall Meeting, from 10 a.m. to Noon on Saturday, February 7, at the Granville M. Sawyer Auditorium, Texas Southern University Campus, 3100 Cleburne Street.

Free parking will be provided on the TSU campus, as will accommodations for hearing-impaired citizens.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in the “Shoot, Don’t Shoot” simulator, as well as view displays of the HPD Helicopter and the SWAT Tactical Vehicle.

Chief McClelland and his commanders will take questions one-on-one and in group settings to find out what issues are of most importance to you and your neighbors. Everyone is encouraged to attend and to voice concerns and ask questions. The event will also be live-streamed on the HPD YouTube channel and live-blogged at www.hpdtownhallmeeting.blogspot.com

Following Chief McClelland’s address and a question-and-answer period, you will be able to break into smaller groups to meet with HPD patrol captains who oversee your neighborhoods. Members of various HPD divisions including Internal Affairs, Homicide and Juvenile will also be present.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
