Center for Policing Equity on the Shooting of Three Houston Officers

January 27 2022

On Thursday, three Houston Police Department (HPD) officers were shot near downtown Houston, Texas. Thankfully, the officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries and are in stable condition.

We keep the three officers, their loved ones, and the community of Houston in our thoughts and hope they are able to make a full recovery. This is the third shooting of multiple police officers in the United States in less than a week. And while the national media might not cover all of these shootings, neighborhoods feel each violent incident that happens in their communities.

We at CPE remain committed to creating a public safety model that produces safer communities for everyone, and will continue to work tirelessly with our partners on that essential endeavor.
