Thanks, Charlene for saying YES!

QUITE OFTEN THOSE HARD-WORKING UNSUNG HEROES go about humbly doing their work for the good guys of the world without seeking or caring about recognition.

For years now the executive director of the Houston Police Foundation has steadfastly followed the Foundation’s ethic, always walking the walk without blaring out the talk about her role in the entire operation.

Indeed, Charlene Floyd exudes that ethic: “We work together under one common passion to support Houston’s continued growth as a safe city that is good for people, good for business, and good for life.” 

Or, as HPOU President Ray Hunt pointed out in the June general membership meeting: “Charlene works hard for the Houston Police Department and its officers and she never says NO!”

Hunt then presented an HPOU watch to the dedicated executive director of the private, non-profit Foundation that provides financial resources for special needs not provided for in the always-tight city budget.

Thanks, Charlene! We appreciate your loyalty and dedication to the HPD officers and staff who are better able to keep our city safe.
