Police Chief McClelland Meets with HPD Student Interns

Houston Police Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr. met with a group of HPD student interns on Monday July 7, 2014 for an open discussion on decision-making, achieving goals and following HPD's core values of Honor, Integrity and Respect.

The young men and women are part of the HPD Volunteer Initiatives Program (VIP) Student Internship.

Chief McClelland spoke with the teens about a variety of topics including determination, work ethic and the meaning of a challenge coin he distributed to every HPD employee.  Some of the Chief's comments in the meeting can be viewed on the HPD YouTube Channel at

The student internship program provides qualified students with course credit and practical work experience that compliments their academic course work.  It provides HPD an opportunity to involve students in various aspects of police work and provides students with an opportunity to integrate theory and practice.

Students from participating institutions may perform a one or two-term internship.  Criminal Justice students may perform their internships at various locations/divisions throughout the police department.  Social Work students may perform their internships under the Family Violence Unit, Homicide Division, Victim Services Unit, Planning and Research Office, or the Special Victims Division.

To become an intern at HPD, a student must complete and successfully pass the VIP Application Process.

For more information on the Volunteer Initiatives Program and Student Internships, visit the HPD Website at or call 713.308.3200 and ask to speak with Senior Police Officer A. Valle or Mrs. Maria Ponce.
