“It’s a great day to be in Hollywood Park” – Chief Prichard
Message from the Chief:
“Serving in the Town of Hollywood Park is truly a unique experience as an officer. We enjoy incredible support from our community and even though we are surrounded by the 4th largest city in Texas, you can’t help but feel you are part of a tight net community who work hard to preserve the beauty and sanctity of this quaint town.
Hollywood Park was recently named the safest city in Bexar County out of 22 other municipalities in the area. This is a direct reflection of the commitment the officers have for the safety of this town, however, I think it also speaks volumes about the quality of the citizens of Hollywood Park and the partnership we enjoy with the residents.
Officers around the nation are going through a tough time right now however I will share that it’s always been a tough assignment to be a peace officer. The late Paul Harvey said it best when he stated “The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy and a gentleman. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius…for he will have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary”. Paul Harvey should know, his father was a police officer who was killed in the line of duty when he was just 3 years old.
Being an officer is also being a part of a brotherhood like no other. You are a member of the thin blue line who are the protectors of the law abiding citizens from would be criminals. We are the blue line that proudly stands between our residents, and the violence and victimization by criminals.
So from the men and women of the Hollywood Park Police Department I welcome you to our page and know that we are here to serve with integrity and compassion and take pride in our profession.”
