ASIS Houston Chapter Next Luncheon Meeting








Date: June 20th, 2018
Location: Hess Club 5430 Westheimer Ct, Houston, TX 77056
Speaker: Chief Art Acevedo, Chief of Houston Police Department.


Art Acevedo was sworn-in as Chief of the Houston Police Department (HPD) on November 30, 2016. Chief Acevedo leads a department of 5,200 sworn law enforcement officers and 1,200 civilian support personnel with an annual general fund budget of $825 million in the fourth largest city in the United States. Chief Acevedo believes good communication is vital for a successful community and steadily works to strengthen the bond between the community and its police department.  A proponent of community policing, Chief Acevedo refers to the proven practice as “Relational Policing,” an opportunity to forge a relationship with each citizen an officer comes in contact with.  The first Hispanic to lead the HPD, Acevedo brings a unique understanding to the concerns of the diverse communities in the City of Houston.  Born in Cuba, he was 4 years old when he migrated to the United States with his family in 1968.  Acevedo grew up in California and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Administration from the University of La Verne in California.  Acevedo began his law enforcement career in 1986 as field patrol officer in East Los Angeles with the California Highway Patrol.  He rose through the ranks and was named Chief of the California Highway Patrol in 2005.  Acevedo most recently served nine years as Chief of the Austin Police Department.
Chief Acevedo holds various leadership positions with the Major Cities Chiefs Association and the International Association of Chiefs of Police. He is married to Tanya Born Acevedo and is the father of Melissa, Matthew and Jake.
