Ambush Attack in Baton Rogue , Law Enforcement Stay Vigilant
We are very saddened by the events that have transpired in Baton Rogue today. It has been reported that three law enforcement officers lost their lives in an ambush shootout and many others have been injured.
Events like this will not deter law enforcement from doing their duty but everyone must remain safe and alert. We all need to take precautions and to respond to calls in pairs for safety. It is important to remain vigilant not only for the safety our fellow deputies but for the safety of the community we serve.

Open Letter to Our Members and the Public
As I was following the events that transpired in Dallas yesterday evening, I was both stunned and horrified by the unfolding incident. It is an emotion I am sure we all felt as we learned more about the sequence of events that led to the death of five law enforcement officers and the shooting of seven others. The death of an officer in the line of duty is always a tragedy and it is a reminder of the noble profession we have dedicated ourselves to. We are all in pain for the family and loved ones of the officers who made the ultimate sacrifice for the people they serve and we join the Dallas law enforcement community and the nation in mourning.
This is a time where we all must reflect and remember that the community we serve is our top priority and it is our honor as law enforcement to continue serving them with distinction. The world is filled with rhetoric that could easily put a wedge between us and the people we serve but we will not allow that. The law enforcement family will unite behind the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Department as they investigate the horrific incident as well as stand with them as they grieve.
Harris County Deputies and surrounding law enforcement must remain vigilant in our duties and forever be mindful of our safety and the safety of the community. We must stand together, stand united, and stand for the community we love and serve every day. When we put on the uniform, we can never know what the day will bring but we can always be prepared to meet it with honored and dignified service.
David Cuevas, HCDO President
Recent Threat Calls for Vigilance
The Harris County Deputies' Organization urges our bothers and sisters in law enforcement to remain vigilant in light of the recent threat made against Houston area law enforcement personnel and recent events that have occurred in Dallas. We pray everyone stays safe. Update - At a protest in Dallas on Thursday July 7, 2016, 5 officers were killed and 7 were shot. The officers were from the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police. This attack specifically targeted law enforcement. All law enforcement personnel should take extra precautions.
The Dallas Police Association has stated that if you would like to donate to the families of the fallen officers of Thursday's attack in downtown Dallas to please visit and give to the Dallas Chapter of the Assist the Officer Foundation.
