HAROLD HURTT HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!

BUT HE’S STILL OFFICIALLY CHIEF UNTIL 5PM WHEN HE ANNOUNCES HIS INTERIM!

It’s official. Chief Harold Hurtt walked out of the Houston Police department for the last time today at 11:45 am this morning. He was surrounded by more than 100 officers. Hurtt is expected to announce an interim chief of the Houston police department at 5pm today. Until that time he remains chief even though he has left the building. Hurtt was appointed Chief by outgoing Mayor Bill White. Mayor Elect Annise Parker made it very public and very clear Hurtt had no place in her administration. Hurtt says he will consider work in the private and public sector. He consider body armor for cops and the reduction in Houston crime rates as some of his biggest accomplishments!
