HPD Chief C.O. Bradford attends Youth-Police Advisory Council

Houston Police Chief C.O. Bradford conducted his second Youth-Police Advisory Council (Y-PAC) on November 17th. Y-PAC, created in 1997, recognizes teenagers as a source of insightful input regarding youth and law enforcement issues. The Y-PAC student representatives shown with Chief Bradford have been selected from varying area schools to meet with police officials, parents and other adults to discuss topics such as domestiv violence, school violence, date rape, and personal safety. Y-PAC also allows students to have a better understanding of the role of police and creates a positive attitude towards police officers. The council meets five times a year during the school term.
