At 9:30 am Tuesday, September 8, members of the Houston Police Officers' Union will announce the "Pray for Police" campaign. The event will be held at the HPOU offices at 1602 State Street.
Joining the HPOU will be HPD Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr., Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman, Mayor Annise Parker, Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, HPD PACA members, Houston Ministers Against Crime, and local ministers.
As part of the campaign, more than 30 thousand wristbands will be distributed to the area citizens, local congregations, and anyone who wants to show their support for the work Houston-area law enforcement does. The light blue wristbands all say "Pray for Police" with the hashtag "#P4P."
For 24 hours, beginning Wednesday, September 9, at 6 am, PACA, and the KSBJ prayer team will be praying with anyone who comes to the HPOU offices to get a wristband.
