Beginning at 3 p.m. TODAY (Friday, March 28), Houston police officers from the department’s Central Division will re-deploy the HPD Mobile Community Outreach Police Station (MCOPS) vehicle to 3703 Irvington (in the parking lot of Menos). The command post will remain at the location until 9 p.m. and will be staffed with officers available for one-on-one citizen meetings and media interviews.
The MCOPS vehicle, acquired by HPD through the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the federal grant-funded Weed and Seed program, initially deployed at Moody Park, 3725 Fulton on Tuesday (Feb. 26) during the kickoff for the “Keep Houston Safe” public safety campaign in the Northside Village neighborhood.
The goal of this overtime initiative is to provide services to the community while providing high visibility; and, at the same time positively impacting the calls for service workload in the area and increasing communication between the police and community.
All area residents are encouraged to stop by and visit the MCOPS vehicle and speak to their officers about their community. We will also be signing up citizens who pledge their support to help Keep Houston Safe.
