A look at HPD's history

On the ground floor of HPD Headquarters at 1200 Travis Street is the HPD Museum that contains an interesting assortment of items from HPD's past.

This is the pocket watch that saved Det. Owen Fondren's life by deflecting a bullet.

I like the detail work on the handle of Inspector Morrison's gun.

A beautifully restored 1952 Ford patrol car. The speedometer goes up to 100 mph.

This was the uniform worn by current Harris County District Attorney Pat Lykos.

This isn't a bad look. I think they should think about using it as a "throwback."
