It was earlier this year when the Insite read an internal memo by some Houston Police Officers who complained about parking at headquarters. The officers say when they arrive at 1200 Travis there is usually no parking for them. They say it makes it very difficult to do their jobs. The memo also indicated there wasn’t enough parking at Travis for the employees who currently work there. On Tuesday I noticed a lot of changes around the building. There was an officer actually walking around the building handing out warnings to people who parked on Polk between Travis and Milam. It’s the street that’s next to 1200 Travis. I’ve noticed only police cars parked around headquarters but I’m not quite sure this will solve the parking headache for the department. There is a paid parking lot directly across from HPD, the department may want to consider buying out the owner or leasing the entire lot!
