HPOU Endorses Sylvester Turner for Houston Mayor

The Houston Police Officers’ Union has endorsed St. Rep. Sylvester Turner for mayor of the City of Houston. After considering other candidates in the mayor’s race, HPOU President Ray Hunt said choosing to endorse Turner was easy for the police officers because of his long track record on public safety issues.

"For over 25 years, Rep. Turner has been a leader in our community, taking on the tough issues," said Hunt. "Rep. Turner puts public safety first. We know he will work with the men and women of the Houston Police Department and every Houstonian to keep our city safe."

"Thank you, Houston Police Officers, for placing your confidence in me," said Rep. Turner. "We will work in partnership to keep crime, drugs and gangs out of our neighborhoods and inspire a new spirit of trust between the community and those who put their lives on the line to protect us."

During his time in the Texas Legislature, Rep. Turner has been a respected leader in Houston and has always been a staunch supporter of public safety. For more information on Turner, please visit www.sylvesterturner.com

Congressman Ted Poe Hosting First Annual North Houston Police Memorial Day Ceremony

Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) and the City of Humble will host an inaugural Police Memorial Day Ceremony at 11:00am on Monday, May 11, 2015 in special recognition of those Texas law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

May 11 – 15, 2015 marks National Police Week, and communities across the nation will hold similar memorial ceremonies honor local, state and federal law enforcement officers for their tireless dedication and to remember those we have lost in fulfillment of their duties. Every day, these brave men and women put on their uniform, pin on their badge and put themselves in harm's way. With their service, comes risk and sacrifice. When the outlaws--the drug dealers, child molesters, wife beaters, robbers, bandits, murderers and street terrorists--threaten our communities, peace officers are the first ones to track them down. We are grateful year-round for their service, and we take one week each year to thank them for all that they do to keep our communities, families and property safe.

Peace officers have protected Americans for over 200 years, but our nation has formally recognized their service and remembered their sacrifices since 1962 when President John F. Kennedy first proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

The public is invited to attend. Law enforcement agencies from across Harris County will be represented.

What: Police Memorial Day Ceremony
When: Monday, May 11, 2015 11:00am - Noon
Where: City of Humble Courthouse
315 N. Bender Avenue
Humble, TX 77338
