Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,

Please do not forget that tomorrow, Saturday, October 28, 2023, from 6 pm through 9 pm, the MVPD will be hosting “Trunk or Treat” and a haunted house here at the MVPD.  We will have trunk or treating, cotton candy, a bounce house, food-trucks, photo’s, an outdoor - scary movie, games, giveaways, and even a real hearse. The only costs will be for food items from the food trucks, everything else is free. Our haunted house will be out back of the station and will include the MVPD jail. Please stop by and join us in having a fun pre-Halloween evening. Compliments of the MVPD Police Foundation.

While that event is going on our patrol officers will be on the streets looking for any intoxicated drivers that may be out and about.  The Saturday before Halloween is always a high DWI offender night as lots of people attend Halloween parties and events. Don’t take a chance and attempt to drive after drinking. Use a designated driver or a ride-share service. The average DWI arrest will cost a drunk driver $15,000 or more in legal fees, fines, and expenses. We will be keeping one of our jail cells open for business during the haunted house and we are not afraid of making someone a real-life exhibit.  

On Wednesday morning, there was a Hit and Run accident that occurred in Spring Valley where a vehicle had struck a pedestrian and then left the scene. Spring Valley PD and Village Fire responded and worked the accident.  MVPD Sergeant Jarvis was monitoring Spring Valley radio channels and heard the description of the suspect vehicle as it was broadcast. Sergeant Jarvis then logged into the ALPR system and searched for the vehicle as it had been last seen heading towards Piney Point.   The sergeant was able to find the suspect vehicle on the ALPR and then verify a license plate.  He then proceeded to the area where it had entered our jurisdiction. A short time later, he located the vehicle parked at a construction site.  The driver was located and identified. Officers from Spring Valley responded and took the suspect into custody for leaving the scene of an injury accident. This is just an example of how the officers who patrol all 6 of the villages work together in protecting our communities. We monitor not just our dispatch channels but also Hedwig, Spring Valley, Village Fire, Spring Branch ISD and the 3 Houston PD area command channels that are adjacent to the villages.  Criminals/suspects do not know what city or village they are in, so it is important that we be aware of incidents occurring nearby. Together we all work hard to keep the entire surrounding community safe.

Tomorrow morning, I will have the honor of participating in the Teen Leadership Summit hosted by resident and State Representative Mano DeAyala. Emerging student leaders from across the metro area have been selected to participate in this day long event where they will hear from community leaders and business executives on a wide range of topics including government, politics, business, the economy, communications, media, leadership, and the community.  

On Tuesday night Officer Boggus and Commander Jones met with scouts at Chapelwood in the Scout House for a presentation on safety. Our thanks to the scout troop for the invite and the opportunity to speak with the scouts and parents. Then on Wednesday, Officer Boggus stopped by the Chapelwood Scarecrow Festival where had the chance to hang out with a great group of superheroes, ninja turtles and other “characters”. Speaking of characters, the attached photo captures one of our “characters”. They then finished off the week this morning with a “snack attack” popup community event at Memorial and Kuhlman.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by and spoke with our staff and VFD.

Only 7 weeks until the Annual - Memorial Villages Twinkle Light Parade. The parade will be held on Thursday evening, December 14, 2023, starting at 6 pm.  As always, the parade will kick off at 6 pm sharp beginning at Frostwood Elementary School. We will follow the same route as last year and serpentine though Bunker Hill and Piney Point Villages and we will once again end at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church where there will be entertainment, hot chocolate, and Santa.  Once again, this year you can have your own entry into the parade should you decide. The theme is the Christmas Holidays, and decorated vehicles with lots of twinkling Christmas lights is all you need to provide. Every year we max out the number of entries as the parade has a limited number of vehicles allowed. We encourage scout groups, neighborhoods, clubs, etc.… to create a float and join in on the fun. If you want to be apart of this annual tradition, contact Ms. Malloy Pack at to register. And then, the even better part of the evening, are the neighborhood street parties that pop up along the route. Every year there are more and more neighborhood gatherings that occur along the parade route.  Friends and neighbors share good cheer, sing, and enjoy the parade. And of course, everyone is also invited to join us at the end of the parade for hot chocolate, pictures, and Santa Claus.  Last year we had 20 tons of snow dropped off that allowed everyone to enjoy some wintertime activities. We are checking on the snow for this year and we will let you know if it will be available.  So,,, Save The Date. December 14, 2023, 6pm.

This morning at 10:30 am, Village Fire Department Chief Miller stopped by the MVPD to present lifesaving certificates to MVPD Officers, Sergeant M. Sprinkle, Officer T. White and Officer A. Lowrey. The officers had responded to a medical emergency event last July and upon arrival at the scene, initiated CPR on the victim. VFD arrived and continued to care for the patient. Our thanks to Chief Miller for recognizing the efforts of the officers.

Lots of really cool pumpkins on display throughout the village. Thanks to Colleen for sending a picture of her Hunter's Creek themed pumpkin. Colleen and her family are new to the villages and wanted to share her pride in the community in her pumpkin design. Welcome to the community and Happy Halloween.

Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz
