As Houston continues to grow, formerly quiet thoroughfares through neighborhoods are becoming more congested with traffic. Longtime Houston resident Henry de La Garza recently wrote this letter to Mayor Sylvester Turner to heap praise on the Houston Police Department’s radar squad of the Traffic Enforcement Division.
Dear Mayor Turner,
I am writing to call attention to the Houston Police Department’s Radar Squad with the Traffic Enforcement Division. Radar officers conducted radar stops in September and October along the 200 block of Chimney Rock Road. My neighbors and I are very appreciative of 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 in 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.
Officer Ted Callahan #97Z56 Senior Officer Tuan Le #97Z51
Sergeant Pete Caseres #97Z03 Officer Clement McClean #97Z31
Senior Officer Matt Davis #97Z55 Officer Aaron Richberg #97Z35
Officer Andrew Egras #97Z30 Officer Marco Rodriguez #97Z50
Officer Edgar Gonzalez #97Z53 Senior Officer Joe Sanchez #97Z57
Sergeant Ray Gonzales #97Z02 Officer Dudley Sanders #97Z39
Officer Andrew Hashimi #97Z58 Officer Lauren White #97Z38

My neighbors and I want to express our appreciation 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 behalf of the Traffic Enforcement Division.
Henry de La Garza
