HPD POLICE CHIEF HAROLD HURTT NEEDS YOUR MENTORING SKILLS!

GETTING THE COMMUNITY INVOLVED!

Chief Harold Hurtt continues to show his intentions of staying put right here in Houston by introducing another long term program for the children in the community. His latest is listed below in the press release. If you would like to volunteer by reaching one and teaching one make sure you get more information. The Insite says the only way to make a difference in your community is to get involved:

January is National Mentoring Month and as part of Governor Rick Perry’s Mentoring Initiative, “Texas Cops & Kids/Kids at Hope” is sponsoring a Mentoring Campaign. On Tuesday, January 9, 2007 at 9 a.m., the Houston Police Department is hosting a Mentoring “Kick-Off” Drive at the Police Department’s Headquarters Building at 1200 Travis. With everyone working together as a team, we can make a difference in a child’s’ life. Please lend your time and talent to help our youth grow and become productive citizens. “Mentors are Treasure Hunters It’s Your Chance to Search Beneath the Surface to find all the Talents, Skills, and Intelligence that Exist in Children” If you are interested in becoming a Mentor or would like more information on the program, please contact Senior Police Kathy Swilley in the Public Affairs Division at (713) 308-3252
