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
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 email@example.com
