Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,
A few weeks
back we experienced several mailboxes being hit and damaged by a vehicle during
the overnight hours. MVPD detectives
were assigned to the case for investigation and began utilizing the MVPD ALPR
system in hopes of developing leads for the case. After reviewing the ALPR data,
detectives were able to identify a vehicle of interest and upon locating and speaking
with the driver/owner of the vehicle, were able to identify the suspect
involved in the incidents. The driver is
now making restitution to the owners of the damaged mailboxes. Charges are
Luncheon. This week, MVPD officers attended the 2023 Houston Area MADD Law
Enforcement appreciation luncheon. Our team does a good job of closely
monitoring our cut through streets and being on the lookout for intoxicated
drivers. So far this year, the MVPD has arrested 20 DWI drivers. Thanks to our
team for their hard work in keeping our streets safe.
Last Saturday morning was the inaugural FLOW (Funding Lymphatic Obstruction and
Wellness) Foundation 5K Fun Run. Runners enjoyed a great morning run around
Piney Point Village. We want to thank everyone for your patience as we blocked
traffic for the runners as they passed by and for the words of
encouragement. Many of the runners
commented on the beauty of the village and the neighborhoods.
October 25th from 9 am to 12 pm Chapelwood School will be hosting
their annual Scarecrow Festival for their preschool students. Expect extra
traffic in the area so please slow down and be on alert for ghosts, goblins and
this week due to your generosity, we were able to send an officer and his
family to a local theater for a musical production. Our officer has a daughter
who is an aspiring singer and actress, so they were excited to be drawn for the
tickets. As always, thank you for thinking of our staff and their families who
all enjoy these unique opportunities.
on joining us next Saturday, October 28, 2023, for the Annual Memorial Villages
Police Department Truck or Treat, and the return of our Haunted House. The
event is hosted by the MVPD Police Foundation.
There will be food trucks on site for anyone wanting to buy a snack.
Besides treats, the Foundation is also looking at trying their new cotton candy
machine. So have the kids put on their costumes and stop by the PD between 6 pm
and 9 pm for a fun event. Please check out the attached flyer.
Our second Snack Attack popped up this morning at 0745 am at Blalock and Quail
Hollow. You’ll never know when or where unless you follow the MVPD on Facebook.
Join now to stay up to date on this, and other community events.
Have a great
weekend. Chief Ray Schultz email@example.com
