Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,

On Tuesday evening, October 4, 2022, from 6 pm – 8 pm we will be holding our National Night Out Event for 2022. National Night Out is the one night a year where we ask for neighbors to get together within your own neighborhoods to meet new residents and to talk about your community and of course safety and crime prevention. Neighborhoods, blocks, streets, or cul-de-sacs are asked to organize events or get-togethers where neighbors can come and get reacquainted, as well as meet new area residents. Events can range from organized pot-luck dinners to neighbors just gathering in a driveway to exchange phone numbers and talk to each other about neighborhood issues.  Of course, we would like to be a part of your neighborhood National Night Out gathering if you would like.  If you are organizing an event and would like for an officer to stop by, please register your event with Officer Larry Boggus at lboggus@mvpdtx.org  Officer Boggus will be assigning officers and command staff to stop by as many events as possible.  Both my staff and I will be out as well stopping by both registered and non-registered gatherings.  The Memorial Villages Community continues to be one of the safest communities in the State of Texas and National Night Out is one of the ways that helps us keep that designation and your involvement is paramount.

Tomorrow morning at 9 am Team MVPD will be participating in the 2022 “Walk Like MADD” Event. The event will be held at Champion Forest located in Jersey Village at 16518 Jersey Drive. This will also be the first annual MADD - Fire Truck Pull. Teams will pull a 43,000-pound fire truck as they raise funds for MADD. There will be demonstrations from both fire and police departments, food trucks, and helicopters. Learn more at  Mothers Against Drunk Driving - Upcoming Events (walklikemadd.org)

This week we saw a lull in both criminal and quality of life incidents occurring in the area. As you will see on the below weekly crime report, there were only 3 significant incidents, and we are not complaining at all. I hope that this is the beginning of a long-term trend and the criminals have realized that it is in their best interest to stay away from the villages. While only time will tell, we will continue to stay proactive in our efforts.

The MVPD Foundation has started making plans for our annual “Truck or Treat” event scheduled for October 30, 2022. Our event will be held on Sunday evening here at the department. Please check out the attached flyer for additional details.

Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz rschultz@mvpdtx.org
