Houston Crimes Stoppers, local law enforcement agencies and the Houston Health Department unveiled a safety initiative to help build relationships between law enforcement and the community.
The program known as the Houston-Harris County Peacekeepers Movement, was announced during a press conference Monday at Crime Stoppers of Houston.
“Houston is a great example of collaboration,” said Michelle Sacks, director of Crime Stoppers Safe School Institute. “By partnering with those who are here today, our city is a much stronger and safer place to live.”
The Houston-Harris County Peacekeepers Movement was created as a result of the passage of Texas Senate Bill 30, known as the Community Safety Education Act.
