Houston Police Department Challenge Coins
Enhanced Community Policing With Houston Police Department Challenge Coins
Since its founding in 1837, Houston has boomed into the fourth largest city in the U.S. It takes a special police force to keep the peace in such a populous city. Houston Police Department officers accomplish this monumental task with professionalism and a single-minded focus. According to its website, the mission of the HPD is “to enhance the quality of life in the City of Houston by working cooperatively with the public and within the framework of the U.S. Constitution to enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce fear and provide for a safe environment.” It’s this focus on working cooperatively with the community that continues to set Houston Police officers apart. The custom police challenge coins earned by the brave men and women of the HPD perfectly showcase their valor and compassion.
For over 15 years, Signature Coins has provided custom law enforcement challenge coins to peacekeepers across the nation. Some of the largest police departments have turned to us to provide the highest acknowledgment they can to officers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty and earned special recognition for their service. We know that being a police officer is often a thankless job, and that’s why we work so hard to create a keepsake that our men and women in blue can be proud of. By choosing us for the creation of your custom Houston Police Department challenge coins, you’re showing your officers that you appreciate the work they do on this otherwise thankless job.
Different Coins for Different Divisions
The city of Houston is home to roughly 2.3 million people. Providing law enforcement services to those citizens are 5,200 sworn law enforcement officers and 1,200 civilian support personnel. How does a department of 6,400 people manage to police 2.3 million? One tactic employed by the HPD is to “actively seek the involvement of citizens in all aspects of policing.” The HPD forges relationships with the citizens in the communities they patrol and makes keeping those communities safe everyone’s top priority.
To best accomplish those goals, the Houston Police Department is broken up into the following divisions:
- Air & Marine
- Auto Theft
- Burglary & Theft
- Central Patrol
- Criminal Intelligence
- Emergency Communications
- The Gang Division
- The Homicide Division
- The Juvenile Division
- Kingwood Patrol
- Major Assaults Family Violence
- Mental Health Division
- Office of Legal Services
- The Narcotics Division
- Psychological Services
- The Robbery Division
- Tactical Operations Division
- Special Victims Division
- Office of Technology Services
The officers serving in these and other divisions work hard to keep the citizens of Houston safe and to bring peace of mind to the families who have been victimized by crime. Each division, and even the units within those divisions, provides an opportunity for a custom HPD challenge coin. Because the day-to-day duties of the Narcotics Division differ from the duties of the Mental Health Division, the challenge coins created for the officers within each division are also different.
At Signature Coins, we understand these fine distinctions. Our customer service specialists and team of artists work hard to make sure that your ideas and designs come to life on your custom challenge coins.
