  1. 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.

  7. In the wake of 16 people hospitalized from overdoses of synthetic cannabinoids known as Kush or K2, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has vowed to "take back our parks" by bulking up police presence there & in other "hot spots" across citywide. Turner had announced on Thursday an "aggressive plan" in creating a 50-person downtown police patrol division, the transfer of about 175 officers to patrol beats, an overtime program to add roving bike & golf-cart patrols in city parks & the hiring of 13 park rangers. "They are scaring away families & taxing our emergency medical services with their calls for help when they overdose," Turner said. "We can't have people smoking Kush & passing out just feet from where our children are playing." http://abc13.com/news/houston-mayor-takes-aim-at-citys-kush-epidemic/1407870/
