We are proud to congratulate 2 of our Explorers, Rohit Shajan and Monserrat “Alice” Romero on being chosen as 2 of the state wide Explorers to receive TLEEAA scholarships for 2019-2020. Both had to submit applications, essays and letters of recommendation from one of their advisors. They are a great example of how doing the right things pay off (literally)!

We would like to send our heartfelt condolences to Houston Fire Department and the family of Investigator Lemuel Bruce.

This program is extremely beneficial to anyone who has a family member this may apply to. Every second matters!

As part of our department’s ongoing mission to be a proactive agency we wanted to shed light on one of our many programs. The Safe Return Program seeks to collect voluntary registrations from parents/guardians/caregivers of individuals diagnosed with Autism, Alzheimer's, Dementia or some other mental/intellectual disability. It is our hope that any of our officers who may come in contact or be called upon to locate an individual in a time of crisis can utilize this information when every second counts.

Here is some important information for kids about gun safety and some freebies for the adults that need these at the house.

Gun ownership comes with an ongoing commitment to safety and responsibility, in which gun owners must have a clear understanding of safe handling and storage rules to achieve the intended personal safety benefits.

Check out our Public Service Announcement on Gun Safety below.

For anyone that has any questions about where our department and it’s officers stand this is a great bit of information.

The reason our post is #237 is because that was his badge number.

On this day four years ago, the Pearland Police Department lost Officer Endy Ekpanya when he was killed in a head-on crash with an intoxicated driver. Officer Endy Ekpanya had been with the department for one year and was survived by his wife Lucy and son Julian.

Pearland Police Chief Johnny Spires stated: “Everything is still fresh in our minds. The crash, the hospital, the investigation, the funeral and the trial. You could feel the pain and sorrow just walking through our building, it was surreal. We ask that everyone keep Lucy, Julian, Ms. Addy and the entire family in your prayers. Endy will always be remembered and honored by our department and the City of Pearland.”

Please feel free to visit our memorial honoring Endy in front of our Police Department.

George Floyd’s Entombment: Mr. Floyd’s procession will be escorted by the Houston Police Department into Pearland following his funeral service. The City expects Mr. Floyd will arrive in Pearland sometime after 1 p.m. at Houston Memorial Gardens, travelling the last mile of the funeral procession in a horse-drawn carriage. The public should monitor local news outlets for updates and visit Transtar for current traffic information.

Attendee estimates at this time are uncertain. The public is welcome to pay respects at public locations and on sidewalks along the route. Barricades will prevent vehicular access on Cullen along the procession route. Attendees are requested to stay behind the barricades to ensure safe travel for the procession and Mr. Floyd’s family.

The Pearland Police Department has been working with other City departments and law enforcement partners to ensure this is a respectful time for Mr. Floyd’s family, safe for those coming to mourn or show support, and safe for Pearland residents and businesses. There will be a large number of Texas State Troopers to assist with traffic control and road closures, per attached map. Roadways are tentatively scheduled to be closed starting at 1 p.m., though may occur earlier.

For attendees there will be a limited amount of public parking near the the cemetery. People attending are encouraged to carpool with family to limit the number of vehicles. Pearland ISD is permitting use of the front parking lots of Dawson High School while the City has reserved some parking at Hickory Slough Sportsplex. Silverlake Church is permitting some parking at their location. There will be a limited number of portable restrooms in the area near Dawson HS and near the cemetery.

Current weather forecasts show “feels like” temperatures reaching 107 degrees and the UV Index is extreme on Tuesday. Visitors should consider the heat index when determining their time of arrival and are encouraged to wear light clothing, sunscreen, and drink plenty of fluids. We request visitors attend to their restroom needs prior to arrival.

We ask for the public’s assistance in making this a peaceful process, urge patience to, through, and from the procession and that we all remember Mr. Floyd’s family in our actions on this day.

Please note, the Pearland Public Safety Building will be closed to the public on Tuesday. People can still call 281-997-4100 (non-emergency) to request an officer.

City of Pearland Media staging is available in the south parking lot of the Pearland Public Safety Building located at 2555 Cullen Blvd.

When everything goes back to normal we would just like everyone to remember the level of appreciation you have now for the teachers that teach our kids. I know it has been stressful as we’ve all taken on the extra responsibility of full time teacher of our children. While we should all be involved in our children’s development, there is no doubt those that do it for a living are pretty amazing for doing what they do!

As a Pearland Police Officer, I came into this career with the goal of “making a difference”. I think everyone in this career wants to make a difference in one way or another and their perception of what that means is personal to each individual. Some people work their entire career on the streets patrolling their city and making their difference that way. Others go into specialized divisions and find their niche doing the specific things that they found they were the most passionate about. I found that in my own personal time I spent quite a few hours doing things within the community which led me to a position in Community Outreach.

Community Outreach encompasses various programs and inherent responsibilities. I have the privilege of leading various programs that I feel very strongly about. One of these programs is the Law Enforcement Explorers program. For those that are unaware of what this is let me give you a brief description. Law Enforcement Exploring is a hands-on program open to young men and women between the ages of 14 and 21 who have completed the 8th grade and are interested in a career in law enforcement or a related field in criminal justice. The program offers young adults a personal
awareness of the criminal justice system through training, practical experiences, competition and other activities. Additionally, the program promotes personal growth through character development, respect for the rule of law, good citizenship and volunteerism.

Our program began approximately 4 years ago and our post number 237 was chosen in memoriam Officer Endy Ekpanya, a Pearland Police Department Officer who was killed in the line of duty by an intoxicated driver on June 12, 2016. Since our inception we have completed over 2500 cumulative community service hours and been recognized competitively on a local, state and national level. Our youth have been recognized individually as well, being awarded numerous scholarships, awards and even selected for appointments to various leadership councils and academies throughout the state.

In the end what I am most proud of are the relationships formed between the youth in our community and our department. I am proud of the diverse group of future leaders we recruit into our post each year. I am proud of the open, honest and insightful conversations we have amongst each other. The fact of the matter is if none of these kids decided to become Police Officers or follow a career in law enforcement in the future but each and every one of them have positive law enforcement experiences and stories to share, then our community outreach can extend further beyond the boundaries of the commonly perceived “community” defined by borders and geographic markers.

We would like to wish everyone our best during these trying times. While we are all practicing social distancing we have the unique opportunity to become both physically and emotionally more connected to our own families. We have the potential to come out of this closer to those we love and tighter as a community as we regain the ability to be there both literally and figuratively for each other. We can’t wait to gather as a post and make a difference!

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Our condolences to this fallen officer, his friends and family.

Congrats to Jacob Siebanoller for being this months holder of the MVE (most valuable explorer) trophy. This trophy gets passed monthly to whoever has tallied the most points for that month in a variety of categories. At the end of the year all numbers are added up and the explorer with the highest total keeps the trophy and has their name engraved into it.
