Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,

This week our officers, detectives and staff have been busy attending events in the community and at our area schools.

On Monday we hosted the annual “Lunch with a Punch”. Former RAD students gathered to refresh their self-defense skills and share a lunch together. Thanks to all of our former students who attended.  

Tuesday was Election Day here in the villages. We hosted a total of 4 voting locations, and all went well with no issues. The election judges and their teams all did a great job keeping everyone organized. So, with the elections now behind us it is time to remove all the election’s signs. If you have a sign on your property, please remove it as soon as possible. 

Wednesday, Memorial Drive Elementary School hosted career day. Officers Boggus and Vasquez spent time with students talking about their jobs as police officers, drone pilots, DARE officers and all the various jobs and tasks that law enforcement personnel perform. 

On Thursday we returned to Memorial Drive Elementary where MVPD staff had lunch with students from kindergarten through 5th grade for their Veterans and Public Safety Day. MVPD was joined by Hedwig PD, Spring Branch ISD, Railroad Police, Retired police officers from multiple agencies from across the country, Village Fire and many area residents and grandparents who have served in all branches of the military. The event coincided with the Birthday of the US Marine Corp. While that was going on, other officers were in the gym running students through an obstacle course similar to the one that military and first responder personnel need to complete as part of their job duties. Everyone had a great time and positive interactions. While all of that was going on MVPD was hosting RAD instructors from across the region for a training update and lunch at Chapelwood Church.

Today, Bunker Hill Village city officials and staff treated both the MVPD, VFD and our families to a BBQ lunch out front of City Hall. Again, it was a great meal and an opportunity for everyone to take a short break and share some fellowship together.

Once again thank you to the residents who sent over Texan football tickets and Chris Rock Tickets, along with the donuts, Crave cupcakes, candy, and fruit this past week. As always, we appreciate you for taking care of our officers and dispatchers.

Next week will be a large-scale active shooter training event in Hunters Creek Village.  The event will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2022, from 0845 to approximately 1500 Hours. Brogden will be closed during this time between Beinhorn and Gaylord. Only local traffic/residents will be allowed in and out of the area.  There will be a large law enforcement and fire presence in the area. There is no need to worry as multiple safety checks are being performed for this FBI sponsored exercise. A special thanks to the over 100 area role players who will be assisting in the training exercise.

The last RAD Class for 2022 will be held December 14 thru the 16th from 10 am until 2 pm. This annual class is geared for mother daughter teams to complete the class together however everyone is always welcome to attend. Classes will be held at Chapelwood United Methodist Church.  Please RSVP to Officer Michelle Owens at mowens@mvpdtx.org
