This video of the memorial service was recorded and edited by HPD Explorer Rajinee Buqing of the Midwest Post 7277.

Great job, Rajinee!

My Explorer Diary.... from the Westside Post

 “I joined the H.P.D. Explorers program to have a better insight of the Houston Police department, get more discipline, and sense of rank structure before I leave for the United States Marine Corps. (July 2015). The Explorers have given me a better understanding of what Police Officers go through and have further prepared me for my career as a future Officer for the Houston Police Department.  Since joining the Explorer program, I have made some great friends that have a common interest in Law Enforcement.  I have also been able to represent the H.P.D. in the following competitions: North Harris County, Lake Jackson/Angleton, and Austin, TX. 

Last summer, I was able to complete an internship with the Houston Police Department and was able to help start this program during my internship.  I highly recommend this regimented, yet fun, program for fellow teenagers that are interested in Law Enforcement.”
