On Friday, January 26, 2024, a benefit was held at the Houston Police Officer Union for the family of Officer Dalton Parker Morrison who passed away on December 1, 2023, from an aggressive form of cancer. Officer Morrison was married and had three children that he left behind when he tragically lost his battle with cancer. Officer Morrison was assigned to the Homicide Division at his time of death and his co-workers describe his invaluable presence both as a co-worker and a friend.
The Homicide Division through their hard work and dedication put on an amazing event and the show of support to the family of Officer Morrison was incredible. The Homicide Division would like to thank Alan Helfman, businessman and five-time Auto Dealership owner in Houston, for his continued support to the Houston Police Department and his amazing generosity for all the auction items he brought for the event. Alan Helfman is dedicated to giving back to the community and we could never thank him enough for all his support. If you did not attend this event, you missed a high energy, upbeat performance by Alan’s band accompanied with Houston Astros Cheerleaders, and Latin Winners from the area. They danced, sang, and raised money for a worthy cause.
The Homicide Division would also like to recognize the Houston Police Officer’s Union who immediately jumped in to provide support from the Officer Morrison family. Also, a special thank you to Mayor John Whitmire and Chief Troy Finner who donated a dinner and their time for auction. Homicide Division would also like to thank the Assist the Officer Foundation along with the Houston Police Officer Union who provided guidance throughout the event and helped with the organization and getting the collected money from the event for the family. With the coordination of efforts around $60,000 was raised for the family of Officer Morrison.
