The HPOU honored Officers Zachary Thomas and Antonio Cisneros as Patrol Officers of the month in January of the New Year.
Thomas and Cisneros have made three significant calls that have led to the arrests of notorious gang leaders and violent gang members in the South Gessner district.
During these incidents officers have made arrests for Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (firearm), Harboring a Runaway, Possession of a Controlled Substance (two charges), Burglary of a Motor Vehicle Warrant and Tampering with Evidence (firearm used in a homicide)
Because of their preliminary investigation and scene management, a murder suspect was identified and arrested within 48 hours.
These officers maintain the highest average of calls for service of any two-man unit and are an asset to the department. They are a testament to the next generation of Police Officers.
