EXCLUSIVE: HOUSTON MINISTERS SAY MAYOR ANNISE PARKER IS TRYING TO SILENCE THEM!

Police, Ministers Butt Heads on Crime: MyFoxHOUSTON.com

MAYOR ANNISE PARKER’S RESPONSE: HPD has created a new organization called the Police and Clergy Alliance that will be officially affiliated with HPD and open to any minister who wants to participate. In the past, there were as many as 10 different ministers against crime organizations operating individually and representing different religions and ethnic groups. Some had exclusive qualifications for membership, including the exclusion of women, that were not in line with the city’s commitment to inclusiveness. Having one umbrella organization is a more unifying approach that recognizes Houston’s diversity and sends a clear message that HPD is open to working with all groups. It will also allow for better coordination of volunteer efforts by HPD’s clergy liaison team.

    Having joined from the begining, and participated to the fullest extent, I testify that PACA is doing everything it promised to do.
    The opportunities to serve and help better our community are endless, and feed back from both the citizens and the Police Officers has beeñ positive and gladly received. Be it giving bottled water or supporting the police officers on the beat, or helping a child to respond positively it is fullfiling a need unmet before. This deserves a 5star rating
