This week is National Police Week and the Houston Police Department showed local school kids the vehicles and gear it uses to catch bad guys and protect the public. Thousands of local school kids took field trips today to HPD's training academy in north Houston. HPD pilots talked about how they use helicopters to chase suspects while an HPD dive team member showed off the inflatable boat and scuba gear used by his unit.
