Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,

I have received a request from the Memorial Area Mom’s Association to share some information about their group with our community. The group is a social group of moms of kids of all ages in the memorial area. The area is the 77024-zip code and schools that feed into Memorial High School.  The group meets regularly and supports each other, their families, charities, and the community. They have several activities coming up this fall that many of you may be interested in.  Learn more on their Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/groups/77024moms

Planning for a multi-agency active shooter drill is well on the way for a training event scheduled for the memorial area on November 18, 2022. Law enforcement and Fire/EMS personnel will be participating in the hours long exercise. This will be a large-scale scene and will include role-players and emergency personnel.  We will share more information as we get closer to the training date that will include planned road closures and detours.

Thanks to everyone who showed up last Saturday at the Memorial Village Rocks event. Officers Boggus and Vasquez tell me that everyone had a great time and that we are now the proud owners of our own “pet” rock featuring Stormy our service dog.  I am hearing that Stormy the Pet Rock may start showing up in the villages. Clues will be sent out in future V-Lincs and on the MVPD Facebook page, and whoever finds Stormy the Pet Rock, and returns her to the PD will receive a Stormy Doll. Stormy will be rehidden somewhere else, and we will repeat. Stormy will visit all 3 of the villages and could be just about anywhere (in public right-of-way).  Stay tuned, as this will be a fun event.

Also, this week, Officers Boggus and Vasquez spent some time with a group of young ladies from troop 126152. Everyone had a good time learning about public safety, citizenship, and community service. (Photo attached)

We received good news yesterday, the MVPD officer statue has finally been completed. Our statue will be on display at a Police Chief’s Conference this weekend in Dallas, before arriving later in the week in the villages.

Thank you to the residents who sent over Halloween cupcakes this week. I saw the empty box downstairs. Next time I guess I will need to be a little quicker.

On Thursday morning while running down Bunker Hill Road I was met by Bunker Hill Public Works staff driving their new utility 4X4 on the sidewalk. The reason why they were on the sidewalk was because the worker had to pick up the (full) doggie bags that had been left along the sidewalk and in resident’s yards and on their driveways. Many of the bags were within steps of the doggie waste station. While we all appreciate everyone picking up after their animals, please make sure that the job gets finished. Discard the bags in the waste cans. Thank you.  

Wednesday was a tough day for accidents throughout the villages. Our officers worked 3 wrecks within minutes of each other. We are continuing our enforcement efforts and will continue to do so.  In the meantime, please slow down and utilize defensive driving techniques. As for the speeders and aggressive drivers, it is just a matter of time before they get to meet one of our fine judges.

Our newest class of RAD55 graduates completed their 4 weeks of training on Wednesday. Congratulations. (Photo attached)

Have a great weekend. If you are up early, go out and enjoy your community during the cool mornings. Village leaders continue to make improvements to our sidewalks and walking paths. Chief Ray Schultz rschultz@mvpdtx.org
