In last week’s V-LINC I had mentioned about
Halloween being a high DWI arrest night. We ended up arresting 2 DWI suspects.
One who was involved in a single vehicle accident (Car vs Wall) and a second
drunk driver who basically, just gave himself up. Read more about these arrests
below and the good work by our evening shift team.
A few weeks ago, we had provided some
information about coping with the pressures of the current pandemic and
resulting isolation that many people have been feeling over the past several months.
With the holidays quickly approaching and COVID numbers increasing for some
people these stressors continue to accumulate. On December 9, 2020 from 5:00pm
– 6:30 pm, the Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church will be hosting a “Blue
Christmas”. The outdoor event will be a great opportunity for folks to safely
gather and create new connections to help deal with the unusual events of 2020.
Read more at the following web page.
As everyone is starting to receive and fill in their
2021 calendars, we want to remind everybody to hold February 18, 2020 open for
a fun day of Golf. The first ever “Birdies for Blues” golf tournament will be
held on that day at the Club of Houston Oaks in Hockley, Texas. The fund-raiser
golf tournament is being organized by 2 brothers (area students and residents),
Hunter and Harrison Lee. These two young men have been working on organizing
this event for several months, working through the COVID pandemic issues to
ensure everyone has a fun and safe day of fellowship and golf. All proceeds
from the event will go directly to the Memorial Villages Police
Foundation. Read more about the “Birdies
for Blues” on the attached flyer.
Detectives from both MVPD and HPD continue to work the
arrests of our 2 suspects that were arrested earlier this week in the Ford F250
pick-up truck. Not only are these criminals responsible for 3 crimes in the
villages that occurred on October 14th, but they had also been on a
crime spree across the area. Great job of inter-agency cooperation between area
law enforcement agencies in making sure that these criminals are held
accountable for their crimes.
With everything that has been going on this year there
have been many events that have either been cancelled or postponed. One event
that will occur this year however, is the 4th
Annual Twinkle Light Parade. The parade will be held on Thursday December
17, 2020. The event is outdoors and will travel the traditional route through
Bunker Hill Village. The 4.5-mile route will provide ample space for spectators
to spread out and watch the night-time parade. Due to COVID-19 there will not
be a visit with Santa or cookies and hot chocolate at the end.
The parade will kick off at 6 pm. We are scheduled to
start at Frostwood and end at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. There are
opportunities for floats and/or Christmas/Holiday decorated vehicles/bicycles
still available. Neighborhood groups, scouts or anyone who wants to decorate
their car, truck, bike or trailer are asked to contact Bunker Hill City Hall.
