HPD Explorer Program
Southwest District’s support for HPD Explorers’ program is fairly recent. It is a new priority for Public Safety Committee Chairman Peter Acquaro.
Currently, we are assisting with up to $1,000 so that Officer Melissa Lopez with HPD Midwest can receive training. Her course takes place in September. HPD Westside’s Explorer Program has been the charge of Officer Mike Prause. South Gessner is still trying to develop its Explorers program. Westside has 65 Explorers. Midwest has about 20.
