Two of Humble's own receive statewide recognition New assistant police chief recognized for his service and career, Chris Green recognized for leadership Humble Assistant Chief Curtis Mills was recently selected to receive the State of Texas Law Enforcement Achievement Award for his Professional Achievements spanning more than 25 years with the Humble Police Department. "It was a big surprise," said Mills, of receiving the award. "I was unaware that I had been put in to receive the award, so to say the least, I was very surprised to learn that I had been selected. It is both a privilege and a honor to be selected out of applicants from across the State to receive a professional achievement award. It was a personal pleasure to travel to Austin to represent the City of Humble, and the Humble Police Department at this event. I have had many things that I have been proud to have accomplished in the last twenty-five years of my law enforcement career, but I think that this tops them all." Humble Police Chief Gary Warman said it was good to have someone like Mills to depend on. “He is the type of person to take on special projects and when I see something that I need done, all I have to do is ask him and he gets it done," he said. Mills, a lifetime resident of Humble, began his career with the Humble Police Department in 1982 and has spent his career serving the citizens of Humble and fellow officers in his department. Some of his professional achievements include spending countless hours as a detective solving numerous robbery and homicide cases, the redesign of the dispatch center in Humble and received recognition from the Drug Enforcement Agency for his role in the “war on drugs” while he was assigned to the Harris County Organized Crime and Narcotics Task Force. He also updated the Humble Police Department's fleet of 24 vehicles with the latest in law enforcement technology, including laptop computers, a video system, MDT, radar and individual hard drives for each officer. “We are the first department on the Gulf Coast to have this type of system and the first in the nation to be totally equipped with it,” said Mark Bradshaw, training coordinator at Humble PD. “After the Harris County district attorney met with Assistant Chief Mills and was shown how our system can be integrated directly into every courtroom through wireless transfer, he decided to seek funding to make that happen. The Humble Police Department is on the home page of the COBAN Web site and viewed as a 'state of the art' agency. All of this is due to Assistant Chief Mills' desire to help in the growth and development of the Humble Police Department.” Chris Green also received statewide recognition. Green received the practitioner/ law enforcement award from the Texas Crime Victim Clearinghouse. “I would like to thank FamilyTime Foundation for nominating me and to thank the City of Humble and the Police Department for all of their support of me and the victim assistance program throughout the years," said Green. "I am honored to accept this award on behalf of all victims and their family members. “ With a background of volunteering for FamilyTime, Green began her career with the Humble Police Department in 1995 as a victim assistance director. She is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, working with victims of domestic abuse as well as sexual assault and providing advocacy for families in juvenile court. Green also developed a Christmas program that provides food, toys and gifts for victims in need during the holidays. "Chris is very deserving of this award," said Warman. "She is here 24 hours a day and is really an asset to the department." This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
