Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,

We have several events coming up in the next several weeks here in the villages. On March 9, 2023, we will host the 3rd Annual Birdies Fore Blues Golf Tournament at the Clubs of Houston Oaks Golf Course. The annual tournament is organized by student athletes from Memorial High School and lead by Senior Harrison Lee. The tournament format pairs up a first responder with a student athlete and 2 playing community member sponsors. The course is always immaculately maintained and the staff at the Clubs of Houston Oaks ensure that everyone has a great tournament. There are still opportunities for players, teams and sponsors. See more at the following link.   Birdies Fore Blues (

Then on March 18th from 9 am – 1 pm, the MVPD will be hosting Coffee with a Cop at the Memorial Villages Farmers Market located at 10840 Beinhorn. Everyone is invited to stop by for a free cup of coffee, to meet members of the Memorial Villages Police Department, learn about how we are fighting crime, see some of our best technology and to hear from FBI Special Agent Steve Lupo as he presents information on “Run, Hide, Fight”. Agent Lupo’s presentation will begin at 11 am and be held inside of the First Congregational Church of Houston meeting room. Agent Lupo provides attendees with an overview of how you need to respond should you ever find yourself in the middle of an active shooter event. MVPD officers will be present throughout the farmers market to answer questions and to address any concerns. We will also have the 2023 RAD schedule available so future attendees can sign up for the class of their preference.  

On March 3rd, 2023, at 6 pm MDE will be holding a Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball and Auction. Our very own, officers Boggus and Vasquez will be auctioned off to the highest bidder as part of a bowling package. Then on March 20th Officers Boggus and Vasquez will be guest Bowlers at Bowl and Barrel bowling with the auction winners (students).   Lucky for the bidders as Officer Boggus is a regular bowler and has bowled in several leagues. Good Luck Team MVPD!

On March 24, 2023, the first D.A.R.E. Class of 2023 will graduate at Frostwood Elementary School. This will be the first graduating class for MVPD Officer Monica Vasquez.  Officer Vasquez has been having a terrific time teaching D.A.R.E. this year at Frostwood along with her many visits to our other elementary schools. Officer Vasquez has been reading to kids at other schools and spending as much time on campuses as possible.  Everyone loves the D.A.R.E. retro stickers on her police unit that can be found parked nearby when she is visiting. If you have not yet met Officer Vasquez she will be at the Coffee with a Cop event, so another  good reason to stop by to meet her and get a picture with her D.A.R.E. vehicle.  

April 1, 2023. The MVPD 2023 Spring Food Truck Rodeo will be held from 10 am – 2 pm at Chapelwood United Methodist Church. Food trucks that have RSVP’s so far include; Cousin’s Mainly Lobster, Off the Leash Hotdogs, the Sophisticated Pig, Eloy’s Catering, the Crepe Xscape, and Kona Ice. We are working on other activities and entertainment so save the date and plan on stopping by and enjoying some of Houston’s best food truck food right here in the villages.  

Many of you have been asking, will there be a Senior High School Car Parade this year?  The answer is yes. The parade will be the same format as the last couple of years with most seniors decorating their cars with the colors and logos of the college/university they will be attending (not mandatory). The parade will travel from MHS down Piney Point to Ecclesia Church. The date will be Saturday, May 13, 2023. Students will start lining up at 9 am and the parade will kick off at 10 am sharp. Our goal this year is to make this the biggest (and best attended) parade yet as we celebrate the accomplishments of the class of 2023.

Late yesterday evening, HPD had a pursuit of a stolen vehicle enter the villages on Voss. The suspects crashed at the intersection of Voss and Memorial into an HPD vehicle requiring the intersection to be shut down. MVPD officers completed the crash investigation for HPD while they investigated the stolen vehicle case. One of the HPD officers received a wrist injury when the airbags deployed but is recovering this morning. The intersection was reopened within an hour.

The MVPD 911 Emergency Communications Center remodel is in full construction mode. A new floor is being installed, radio equipment is starting to arrive, electrical work and new wiring is also being installed.  This week over 100 pounds consisting of 3 generations of wiring was cut from the ceilings. Coax, Cat 1, and Cat 3 cables are being replaced with fiber and ethernet. We are already seeing differences in the efficiency of our systems. New jail monitoring systems have also been installed helping us improve safety for officers and prisoners alike.

Last weekend’s Superbowl celebrations went off without a hitch and we appreciate everyone’s assistance. Superbowl evening is a time where we often see an increase in intoxicated drivers on the roads after the game concludes. We didn’t see any and that’s a good thing.

Thank you to the folks who sent over the Valentine goodies on Tuesday. We had 8 pizzas show up, dozens of homemade egg rolls and 4 pounds of Chocolate. While the combination sounds a little unusual, it worked, at least based on how fast the food disappeared.  Thank You.

Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz
