Mayor White's Ride Alongs

Mayor White has gone on patrol with HPD again:

Mayor Bill White got a first-hand look at what police officers see on a regular basis Tuesday night when he rode along in a squad car.

The mayor spent time in a high-crime area of southeast Houston.

Mayor White said he wants officers to know everyday citizens are backing them up.

"I just want to tell them we're proud of what they do. We have people risking their lives for us every day. We have people going undercover. It's not easy," said the mayor. "The officer I was with -- we apprehended a couple of people. It could have been dangerous."

The mayor, who has made crime one of his top priorities, says it's important for citizens to work together and with law enforcement officers to help crack down on crime.

Along with acronyms and task forces, we'll have to add Mayor White's Ride Alongs.
