HPD continues to keep traffic safe in Chimney Rock neighborhood

Chimney Rock Road has become a major thoroughfare for Houston drivers. Residents say that has disturbed the calmness of the community and created a safety hazard.

Chimney Rock resident Henry de La Garza recently wrote to the Correspondence and Constituent Services Division of the Mayor’s Office about the Houston Police Department’s efforts to monitor traffic and maintain safe.

“I am writing to call attention to the Houston Police Department's Radar Squad with the Traffic Enforcement Division,” he wrote. “Radar officers conducted radar stops in August and September along the 200 block of Chimney Rock Road. My neighbors and I are thankful for sergeants Ray A. Gonzales and Pete Casares for their attention to our continuing requests for random radar stops which have been conducted. Speeding continues to pose a serious risk to the safety of families residing on our stretch of Chimney Rock Road which has become a major thoroughfare. The Radar Squad has caused some motorists to at least think twice before exceeding the speed limit through our neighborhood and paying the price.”

Mr. de La Garza listed the following HPD officers for their participation in monitoring traffic on Chimney Rock:

  • Officer Ted Callahan
  • Sergeant Pete Casares
  • Senior Officer Matt Davis
  • Officer Andrew Egras
  • Officer Edgar Gonzalez
  • Sergeant Ray A. Gonzales
  • Officer Andrew Hashimi
  • Officer-Charles Hightower
  • Senior Officer Tuan Le
  • Officer Clement McClean
  • Officer Aaron Richberg
  • Officer Marco Rodriguez
  • Senior Officer Joe Sanchez
  • Officer Dudley Sanders
  • Officer Luis Velasquez

“My neighbors and I want to express our appreciation and thank you for these fine police officers and the Houston Police Department under your leadership. Enough cannot be said to express our appreciation for the outstanding efforts on our behalf by the traffic Enforcement Division,” de La Garza wrote.
