At a 10 a.m. TODAY (June, 3), members of the Houston Police Department will join school officials and police commanders from several area school districts in kicking off “Project Safe Start.”
HPD Assistant Chief Dan Perales will be joined by police commanders from HISD, Spring Branch ISD, North Forest ISD, Alief ISD, Pasadena ISD, Fort Bend ISD, Harris County Sheriff’s Office, and METRO Police Department.
This year marks the 23rd year that Houston police, school campus police and area ministers have teamed up to provide additional security for students and teachers as they begin their summer vacations.
“Project Safe Start” provides a ministerial and law enforcement presence in and around identified school campuses on the last days of school. Houston area ministers have consistently supported the efforts of the Houston Police Department to ensure students begin a safe summer.
