End of an era today at Houston Police Department

HOUSTON Today he officially retires and is expected to name an interim chief, who will run the department until Mayor-elect /*Annise Parker*/ chooses /*Hurtt*/'s replacement.

Hurtt came to HPD in March of 2004. He brought changes to HPD, including a new property room and Tasers, but Hurtt's policing initiatives often came with expensive overtime, and the mayor-elect made it clear she would start her new administration with a new chief.
