Public Safety Officer Manuel Martinez reported an individual seen jumping the gate at the McGovern Medical School bike rack, after attempting to steal a bike.  Officers were called and were able to make contact with the suspect who was put into custody. This is the third time PSO Martinez has helped prevent a theft at the McGovern Medical School bike rack.


Officer Megan Davis was called to the Harris County Psychiatric Center (HCPC) for an individual in crisis. The individual began climbing a fence into a nearby construction site, then continuing to climb a ladder.  The individual threatened to end his own life.  Officer Davis was able to talk the individual down from off the ladder with de-escalation techniques. The individual was taken into custody and transported to a safe location. 


Officer Peter Dahlman was recognized for his help de-escalating a patient issue.  Officers were called to a situation involving a grieving family. When officers arrived, they intervened and deescalated a situation with more than a group of 10 family members visiting a dying patient.
