From the Office of the Chief of Police

On behalf of the entire staff of the Memorial Villages Police Department we would like to wish all of our residents a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Holiday. The MVPD will be busy Thanksgiving Day keeping an eye on the Community. Whether you are home or away, our staff will be on patrol.

We would like to thank the Memorial Villages Police Foundation for catering Thanksgiving Dinner for both day shift and night shift personnel. This year, dinner is being catered by Johnathan’s Rub.

Thanksgiving has changed over the years, from being one of the quietest and most tranquil holidays to one that now starts out quiet but quickly ramps up into a pre-black Friday shopping frenzy. We have gone from many stores opening at 6am on Friday, to 4am, to midnight, to 6pm on Thanksgiving and now for some stores, as early as 2 pm on Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, this will mean increased local traffic as people head out towards the Memorial City Mall and the shops along I-10. We will be focusing traffic enforcement efforts on our north/south thoroughfares all day Thursday and Friday.  

If you decide to venture out, please be sure and lock your car doors and hide any valuables. Use extra caution when using ATM’s, always get copies of receipts and closely monitor all credit card accounts for any suspicious or unauthorized charges.  Criminals like this time of year to commit fraud due to so much credit card usage occurring, discovering that an account has been compromised is often not found until January or February and by then the thieves are long gone and harder to track down. 

Again, have a very Happy Thanksgiving. Chief Ray Schultz rschultz@mvpdtx.org
