Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,

The Village Fire Department will be hosting 2 CPR and AED Training Classes this summer on June 20th, 2023, and July 20th, 2023. Classes will be held at the Village Fire Department Headquarters located at 901 Corbindale Road in Hedwig, from 5:30pm – 8:30pm. Space is limited to 14 students for each class. The cost is $35 per student.  Register at ASAP to save your spot. See attached Flyer.

On Wednesday, Hunters Creek Elementary School held their annual 5th grade graduation car parade.  Officers Boggus and Vasquez joined in the “Mardi Gras” themed event as the group traveled from the school to the racquet club for a pool party. Congratulations HCE.

On Thursday, Memorial Drive Elementary held their 5th grade graduation parade. The parade started at the SBISD temporary facility and traveled to the racquet club. The theme for MDE was “Top Gun”. Congratulations MDE.

So, as you can see above, lots of graduations are occurring across the villages. Students are graduating from schools of all types and with the graduations come parties.  Every year during the last week of May and especially on Memorial weekend we see graduation parties across the villages. Unfortunately, we also see a significant increase in calls for loud parties that often include parking complaints. Remember to be respectful of neighbors. What we find that works best is first informing neighbors about the event so everyone knows what is going on. If there will be a large gathering with lots of cars, please consider using a valet service. Ask guests to park in a manner that does not block driveways and that will allow for fire trucks and emergency vehicles to safely pass down the street. A minimum of 96 inches is required.  In the event of an emergency, fire trucks do not stop and measure the width of the road, they will just drive through, anyway they can.  As for noise, please point any sound equipment towards your home and not at your neighbors. Music should be turned down by 10 pm, and off by 11pm or midnight, depending on your city. Pool parties also need to be monitored so noise does not get out of control. And most important, if alcohol is a part of your party (for legal aged guests) please ensure that guests are not over-served, and arrangements are made for them to get home safely. Ride-share services work great. Remember, you can be held civilly liable for over-serving guests who later become involved in an accident.  And of course, our officers will be on the look-out for intoxicated drivers over the next several weeks. Again, congratulations to all our 2023 graduates.    

Reminder – Monday is Memorial Day, so city offices are closed. There will be garbage collection, but no construction or lawn service is allowed.

Monday is also the official beginning of vacation season. Please don’t forget to add your home to the house watch list if you are going out of town.  Add your house on our webpage (residents only) at or give us a call at 713-365-3700.

After this weekend, next up is the 4th of July.  There will be a 4th of July parade this year. (Sorry just a parade, no Village Independence Festival). This is everyone’s annual opportunity to be in a parade. There are only 2 requirements, one you register with Ms. Malloy Pack of Bunker Hill Village at and two, you decorate your car, truck, trailer, boat,or motorcycle in Red, White and Blue. The entire community is invited to come out and line Piney Point Road between Gaylord and Ecclesia Church and display your patriotism. All observers are also to asked to wear, Red, White and Blue and to bring your flags and help us celebrate.

We will have police cars, bicycles, and our motorcycle, along with the Village Fire Department. There will be a mayor or two, some city councilors and commissioners. All we need now are some scouts, church groups, clubs, car groups, veterans or anyone who wants to join in. Decorated bicycles are also asked to show up and ride out front of the parade.  Anyone wanting to run down Piney Point Road (wearing Red, White and Blue) can also join in. Runners and bicycles leave at 945 am and the parade kicks off at 10am sharp. We will line up on Gaylord in the church parking lot at 9:30 am on July 4th. So, plan now on celebrating the 4th of July with your neighbors and friends right here in the Memorial Villages.

On Behalf of the staff of the MVPD, I would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe Memorial Day weekend.  Chief Ray Schultz
