In a move that surprised some but didn't with others, HPD Police Chief Art Acevedo recently announced he was leaving the Space City for South Beach & becoming the new police chief of the Miami PD in Miami, FL. In his last press conference, he also got into another testy exchange with NBC 2 KPRC-TV Houston reporter Mario Diaz. Texas Monthly had an article detailing how Acevedo managed to piss off everybody. Give me your thoughts on Acevedo's tenure as HPD Police Chief & how he'll be remembered ? Yesterday inside Houston City Hall: Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D) announced Troy Finner would become the new HPD Police Chief replacing Acevedo.

No more blue and white. Police Chief McClelland Unveils New Patrol Vehicle Colors Houston Police Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr., today (Monday, July 2) unveiled a new image for HPD's patrol vehicle fleet. HPD's patrol vehicles will soon sport a black and white color scheme. In addition, several vehices of different makes and models are being tested for consideration as a replacement to the current Ford Crown Victoria. The vehicles are the following: Ford Interceptor Dodge Charger Chevrolet Caprice Chevrolet Tahoe Photos of the vehicles and the new color scheme are attached to this news release. Following discussion within and outside HPD, a decision was made to convert the current patrol vehicles to a more traditional black and white color scheme. Chief McClelland said, "The Ford Crown Victoria is no longer being manufactured so we were forced to look at other options. This was a good opportunity and transition point for us to go to a classic police car and follow professional standards around the country," Chief McClelland added. It is estimated the conversion for the entire HPD fleet will take about two years. During that time, some patrol vehicles with the orignal blue and white banner will still be in circulation.
