Who should the building be named after…That’s the question and battle going on at the Houston Police Department. Houston City Councilman and former HPD chief C-O Bradford has sent a letter to Mayor Annise Parker and other council members saying he believes HPD headquarters at 1200 Travis should be named after former Houston Mayor Lee P. Brown.
But members of the rank and file and current HPD chief Charles McClelland feel the cop shop should be named after retired HPD Officer Edward Thomas. As you know he is one of the longest serving police officers in the country. He worked at HPD from 1948 to 2011. No word which way Mayor Parker and the council will vote on this naming issue.
