Last week AAPOL was back at the State Capitol for the 86th Legislature regular session. We attended the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee Hearing and other meetings with our legislators. Remember our voices are important so we must participate in the process if we want to be part of real solutions.

Also the Afro-American Police Officers League is working diligently with Legislators in Austin to amend sections of the Occupation code. HB 3858 Relates to the submission by a law enforcement agency an amended Employment Termination F5 Report (Separation of Licensee). If passed this amendment would allow the Chief to amend one of our former members (Sr. Officer Katharine Swilley) who was terminated in 2008 after 20 years of service- after she filed a complaint with the EEOC attempting to address discrimination in her workplace. During her career Officer Swilly was known for working with inner city youth and was a decorated officer. She received several commendations including two Mayor commendations during her career. This bill would help employees like Swilley F5 report be changed from a dishonorable discharge status to a honorable discharge.

On Friday, 22 March 2019 Officers from AAPOL, P.A.L. and the G.R.E.A.T. Unit of the Gang Division (in conjunction with H.I.S.D.) held a successful school-wide event at Ross Shaw Sterling High School (Houston) in SE Houston. The purpose of the affair was to introduce SB30 to the students and bridge the social distance between law enforcement personnel and the community they serve.

The event was huge success ! Approximately 400 Juniors and Seniors from Sterling took part. Dr. Penn (TAPS Academy) along with Senior Police Officer Treva Mott presented the state-sanctioned SB30 power point presentation. Afterwards officers from AAPOL, G.R.E.A.T. and P.A.L. fielded questions from the students in smaller break-out sessions. The officers shared with the students in their respective groups, what led them to a career in law enforcement. Gang Division Commander Johnson and Lieutenant Lorenzana spoke to the crowd emphasizing the need for SB30 and offering the students opportunities to participate in Mayor Turner’s SJP (Summer Job Program). The coaches for each team (Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball) did their part by arranging the schedules of their players to participate.

When the ball went up, female officers battled the girls’ varsity during the 1st and 3rd quarters of the game; while the male officers competed against the boys’ varsity players during the 2nd and 4th quarter of the game. (For those keeping score at home – the students won by 4 points)

Additionally, flyers were distributed to the students at the conclusion of the game. The flyers were a written list of the 10 RULES OF SURVIVAL IF STOPPED BY THE POLICE.

Special thanks to Principal King, Dean Bland, H.I.S.D. School Resource Officer Garcia, HPD Gang Sergeant Nieto, HPD P.A.L. Sergeant Sandoval, HPD P.A.L. Lieutenant Lopez,
HPD Community Officer Anderson and AAPOL President Det. Carr for approving and supporting this endeavor.
