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. Please email Ms. Karen Glynn at kglynn@bunkerhilltx.gov to reserve your spot and to receive additional details. 

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