It’s a scary thought for a man to see a woman standing with a very intense look on her face and a pair of scissors…at least a pair that big. But all jokes aside, you’re looking at HPD’s Deputy Director of Communications Regina Woolfolk. She is holding the ceremonial scissors for the ribbon cutting at HPD’s new Property Room. I thought it was a cool picture and discreetly aimed and got the shot. It was the same day Regina told the Insite I was always incognito but I’m always there. By the way, Woolfolk’s staff has nothing but wonderful things to say about her and I believe them. Hey Regina, thanks for stopping by the Insite. And put those big scissors away, please!
COULD THE PROPERTY ROOM BE A PART OF WHITE AND HURTT’S LEGACY IN HOUSTON?
Mayor Bill White and Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt were all smiles Thursday morning. The men unveiled what could be part of their legacy after both of them disappear from their leadership roles in the future. It was the brand spanking new state of the art HPD Property Room. The $13 million dollar project replaces the old building that was built in 1903. According to city officials HPD’s previous property room was plagued with problems from leaking roofs to missing evidence. HPD leaders are hoping this new 50,000 square foot facility will erase the past. The property room now boasts a subzero freezer for evidence, automated shelves, a radio frequency tracking system and much more. Mayor White, Chief Hurtt, Council members James Rodriguez and Mike Sullivan were on hand for the ribbon cutting. Members of the media along with a list of VIP’s were given a tour of the facility as Chief Hurtt logged in the first piece of evidence. Here are the pictures from the big event!
