LPPD participates in LPHS Red Ribbon Week The La Porte Police Department (LPPD) participated in the Annual Red Ribbon Week activities held at the La Porte Independent School District’s High School Campus. Officers from LPPD Support Services and K9 Divisions worked to educate students on the dangers of the illegal use of drugs and alcohol. The activities included a K9 demonstration and the use of impaired driving goggles. LPPD is committed to educating students in an effort to help them make good decisions, resulting in bright futures. The National Family Partnership (NFP) provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign™. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.

More than $71,000 distributed through LPCPAAA Flood Relief Program Thanks to a generous donation from a La Porte citizen, the La Porte Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (LPCPAAA) was able to set up a relief program immediately following Hurricane Harvey. With those funds, the LPCPAAA established a Flood Relief Program designed to provide immediate aid to La Porte Residents and First Responders who had their homes flooded during Hurricane Harvey. Through the Flood Relief Program, the LPCPAAA provided a $500 gift card to qualified applicants to assist them with any immediate needs they had as a result of the storm. This kind gesture to assist our own community was followed by subsequent gifts from several of La Porte’s star corporate citizens, including the La Porte Rotary Club, Tri-Star Aviation, Doosan Turbomachinery Services, Air Products, Kaneka, and Noltex LLC. Additionally, Beacon Federal Credit Union, La Porte branch, graciously waved the fee for all gift cards allowing one hundred percent of the donated funds to be given to the qualified recipients. In all, more than $71,000 was received and disbursed to citizens and first responders, who suffered a loss from Hurricane Harvey. Applications for the program were made available to the public from the La Porte Police Department (LPPD). LPPD Officers also went door to door, dropping off applications in some of the harder hit areas within the City Limits. Once the applications were received, a committee formed by the LPCPAAA reviewed the applications focusing on those applicants determined to be in the most need. Once approved, a representative of the La Porte Police Department contacted the recipient and presented them with the gift card. Although all funds have now been distributed and the program has come to a close, the initiative served as an example of the great things that happen when people come together to help one another.

Paw Festival nets 23 forever homes On Saturday October 28th, 2017 the City of La Porte Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility hosted the Paw Festival as part of the October National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. The adoption efforts started on October 24th and ended on October 28th with the Paw Festival activities. 23 animals were paired with forever homes during this short period of time. The festival included snacks, drinks, and activities such a jump house and a pet costume contest pictured above. This adoption period was partially funded by Triumphant Tails, Inc. a Texas-based canine welfare organization comprised of dedicated animal lovers committed to the rescue, training, rehabilitation, care and placement of unwanted, homeless, sick and/or abused animals into new homes dedicated to providing them love, care and lifelong support. This event and partnership with Triumph Tails Inc. is just one example of the many programs the City of La Porte Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility host in the continuation of our committed effort to find loving homes for all the animals in our care. For the low adoption fee of $50, you could take home one of the animals that come into our care. The adoption fee comes with a voucher to have your new family member spayed or neutered and Rabies Vaccination. The Adoption Center also provides free basic vaccinations and a registered microchip with each adoption.

Goatee Burglar identified and Charged. Lincoln Johnson 07/12/1954, charged with multiple burglaries. Currently in Harris County Jail. https://t.co/ejDL1TrRf2

Goatee Burglar identified and Charged The Police La Porte Police Department (LPPD) has been on the hunt for a burglary suspect who burglarized two local businesses during the month of September 2017. The suspect was captured on surveillance video while breaking into both a commercial business on South 8th Street and later a jewelry store located in the 8600 block of Spencer Highway. The suspect pictured above was observed driving a Blue Nissan Versa, which can also be seen in the photo. The suspect is also believed to have burglarized a number of businesses in communities surrounding La Porte. On Wednesday, 10/04/17, LPPD Detectives learned that a suspect matching the LPPD suspect’s description had been arrested by Pasadena Police Department Patrol Officers, during a traffic stop, for a Probation Violation Warrant. LPPD Detectives interviewed the suspect, identified as Lincoln Johnson, of Pasadena. As a result of the investigation, property from several burglaries, including the recent La Porte Jewelry Store burglary, as well as an abundance of burglary tools, were located in a hotel room and the suspects’ car. The Harris County District Attorney’s office accepted charges for both of the burglary cases from La Porte.

La Porte Police Department's 2017 National Night Out On Tuesday October 3rd, the citizens of La Porte jointed members of the Police, Fire, and EMS Department in celebrating National Night Out. As in previous years, the occasion was highlighted by the Police Department’s annual open house. However, several neighborhood gatherings were also held throughout the community and were attended by personnel from the City’s Emergency Services as well as members of City Council. This year’s residential National Night Out events in La Porte varied depending on the neighborhood. Some neighborhoods hosted block parties, complete with food and refreshments, while other community members planned their events in nearby parks, advertising it within HOA newsletters weeks before the event. Other residents simply gathered among centrally-located neighborhood homes and socialized as children played. In addition to eight neighborhood-centered outreach efforts, nearly 350 citizens visited the La Porte Police Department’s open house at the Herbert Freeman Police facility. Open house attractions included guided tours of the police department, courtesy of the police department’s dedicated Citizen Police Academy volunteer staff, Youth Explorer Post, and Communications Division. Other displays and demonstrations were provided by emergency services personnel from throughout Harris County, including visits from Harris County Precinct 8 Constable Phil Sandlin, along with several of his deputies. Additional emergency response and service organizations represented were Port of Houston Police, US Customs, U.S. Army, and Harris County Marine Division, & Community Service Divisions. Texas House State Representative District 128 Briscoe Cain III and representatives from Congressman Brian Babin’s office were also in attendance. A number of City of La Porte members were on hand to represent the Police Communications Division, Crime Victim’s Services, Bomb Squad, SWAT, DARE Program, Bicycle Patrol Unit, and Animal Control, as well as staff from the Office of Emergency Management, Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Marshall’s Office, and Municipal Court. Furthermore, associates from Beacon Credit Union, Wells Fargo, and State Farm Insurance agents comprised local business involvement. San Jacinto College and the Bridge provided information on community awareness and opportunities. Representing area support units were Alpha Search and Rescue, Operation Lifesaver Train Safety, Lyondell 911, the La Porte Fire Department’s ladies auxiliary, Project Blue, and Cajun Navy. Food and refreshments were graciously provided by Beacon Federal Credit Union, H.E.B., Mr. Barry Beasley, and the La Porte Citizens’ Police Academy Alumni Association. Lil Jack’s Moonwalks also gave a well-appreciated repeat performance in offering recreational activities for the attendees at the police facility, free of charge. National Night Out gives residents an opportunity to intermingle in a setting close to home, and showcases another example of how the La Porte Police Department strives to foster positive relationships and promote safer neighborhoods.
