On Monday evening MVPD officers were successfully able to reunite 2 missing persons with loved ones thanks to the ALPR system. Two missing persons were located within hours of each other when the ALPR’s alerted officers to the presence of the vehicles in the area.  One of the missing person alerts had been seen by MVPD officers while on his way into work on area freeway message boards.  The second missing person had been missing for several hours and was without needed medication and was found to be dehydrated.  Great work by our officers in locating these individuals and reuniting them with family and medical providers.

This week we held our first summer R.A.D. class.  I had the opportunity to speak with the group of women on Monday morning.  The class included 9 high school and college students, which is always great to see, and a mother daughter duo attending class together and 2 RAD Alumni. Congratulations.  We have 2 more RAD classes scheduled for this summer. July 5-7 and August 1-3.  Contact Officer M. Owens at Mowens@mvpdtx.org for additional information or to register.

As always, thank you to the residents who provided their unused Astro’s tickets this week. Our staff always enjoys the opportunity to see a game with their families.

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