Law Expo returns to Greenspoint Mall

GREENSPOINT – The 24th Annual Law Expo, an exhibit of resources by over 30 Law Enforcement Agencies, was held at Greenspoint Mall this year. Last year the event had to be canceled, due to Hurricane Ike damage throughout the community. This year the weather was sunny and calm, and over 30 agencies participated in exhibits inside and outside the mall. The appreciative audience numbered over a thousand.

In addition to displays, families could have their children fingerprinted, and their Child car seats inspected for safety. Inside the Mall, awards and appreciation certificates were presented, and government officials spoke about the quality of public safety agencies serving out area. The audience was also entertained by YMCA kids performing gymnastics, by McGruff the Crime Dog, and music before and after the presentations.

The event was sponsored by the Greenspoint Mall, in partnership with the NHGreenspoint Chamber, Harris County Sheriff, and Houston Police.

Popular exhibits included police helicopters, horse mounted officers, command centers from several agencies, SWAT equipment from several agencies, boat patrols, ESD equipment, Life Flight, motorcycle squads, fire and hazardous materials equipment, and more.

Citizens could view exhibits, and in many cases sign up for classes or citizen participation.
