About the HEC Director

David Cutler

David F. Cutler has been the Director of the Houston Emergency Center (HEC) since July 2005.

Prior to his acceptance of the HEC leadership, he retired after twenty-four years of service from the Houston Police Department as Assistant Chief of Information Services Command.

Additionally, he served as a Sergeant of Police from 1987 to 1990 and, then, as Captain of Police from 1993 to 1996 within the police department’s Emergency Communications Division.  These experiences allowed him to be highly knowledgeable in the field of emergency communications.

“In the past years, we have streamlined our emergency services, improved accountability for communication systems, and emphasized exceptional work ethics,” stated Cutler.

“As a team, HEC will continue to maintain the high standards that are expected of us to assure citizens of Houston that public safety is our highest priority.”
