AP: Chief Hurtt gives himself an A-

ACCORDING TO AN AP STORY, outgoing HPD Chief Harold Hurtt gives himself a grade of A- for his tenure in Houston.

We liked Marc Campos's take: "Of course, the Mayor-Electís grade is the only one that counts." Indeed.

Mayor-elect Parker seems inclined to promote from within, which probably rules out a William Bratton or Bratton disciple. We hope the new chief will at least be open to the proven techniques Bratton and crew have developed. With our manpower shortage and budget difficulties, we will have to police more effectively than ever.
