At 9 a.m. TOMORROW (Saturday, November 10), Houston Police Assistant Chief Henry Gaw will meet with members of the Youth Police Advisory Council (YPAC) to discuss issues important to teens at the HPD Edward A. Thomas Building at 1200 Travis
Among the topics the teens will discuss are bullying, peer pressure and teen suicide.
YPAC fosters communication and trust between HPD and area youth. Since 1997, the council has provided a forum where a diverse, volunteer group of high school teenagers meet with the Chief of Police, other police officials, and adult mentors to share and discuss issues of importance to Houston’s youth, with an emphasis on law enforcement topics.
Council members are recruited from the Houston Independent School District and other surrounding school districts. The students are asked to share their experiences with fellow teens and their communities, following the meetings.
