As this week ends @houstonpolice has a total of four sworn members who have tested positive for COVID-19.— Chief Art Acevedo (@ArtAcevedo) March 27, 2020
I am sad to report one of the four has now been hospitalized. Please pray for all impacted by this virus at HPD, and across the globe. #RelationalPolicing #InItTogether
Police Chief Art Acevedo said the officer has a cough so bad, he's coughing up blood and having trouble breathing.
Chief Acevedo and the officers' family are asking for prayers. "We are praying for everyone affected by this, it's serious stuff," said Acevedo.
