Help Us, Help You: HPD Video on Police/Citizen Interaction

February 26, 2015 - The Houston Police Department recently released a video on its YouTube channel providing tips on what citizens should do when stopped in a motor vehicle or detained by an officer.

HPD Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr. said the video is in response to community requests for HPD to advise citizens on how best to interact with officers in the safest way possible for all. "We take part in forming good police/community relationships every day here at HPD," said Chief McClelland. "Part of building such relationships is listening to our customers. By producing this video, we are doing just that: giving some valuable information in what to do when interacting with an officer," the Chief added.

The video is posted on the HPD YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY8Md3J5W-M&list=UUqFuQjTZLorOjmgGD_uhFEg The video link can also be found on the HPD website www.houstonpolice.org

The "Help Us, Help You" campaign is aimed at sharing information and educating citizens on crime prevention and everyday tips related to public safety in our city.
