Almost 200 Houston police officers lost their homes to the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told Breitbart Texas that despite horrible tragedy in the Houston area, police officers in the region are continuing to put their duties first:
“The collective heart of the Houston Police Department (HPD), the Houston Fire Department, all of our municipal co-workers, (and) just the entire first-responder community in this city is second to none, and I am very proud of that,” the chief said. Despite more than 200 officers having their own homes damaged or destroyed “They’re putting their duty first.”
The chief praised not only the commissioned officers who wear the dark blue uniform but the entire support staff and dispatchers.
