Below is the link to the Pension Reform Terms and Conditions 
document and the Risk Sharing document that has been agreed 
to by the pension system and the City of Houston.  These documents
will be used as a guide in developing legislation for the legislative 
session beginning in January 2017.  The benefit restructuring included 
in these documents may change in a small way but are essentially complete. 

The pension staff is collecting information from your phone calls and emails, 
as well as emails sent to Trustees, and will address in a question and answer
format the themes of the questions asked and the corresponding answer. Next 
week after we field more calls and emails these questions and answers will be 
posted to the website.



The Houston Police Retired Officers Association started in Crockett Texas in 1994. A group of retired HPD officers were gathered for an informal reunion when the idea of the HPROA was born and it has grown for over the last 22 years. Each of those years there has been a “reunion” of some sort in Crockett.  The reunions  started out small, got big and are now getting smaller every year. The number of HPROA members in East Texas is declining because of deaths, illness, lack of interest or moving out of East Texas. Also very few new retiree’s are retiring to East Texas. The attendance at the Crockett reunion the last three years has been 123, 122, and 117 this year. In an attempt to determine how many of the Crockett reunion attendee’s are from “East Texas” we asked the attendee’s at this year’s reunion to list their home town when they signed in at the reunion. After the reunion I plotted the home town of all the attendee’s on a map. The area I designated as “East Texas” was the area North of Willis, East of I-35, South of the Oklahoma border and west of the Louisiana  border. Only 39 of the 117 in attendance were from “East Texas” and 13 of those were HPROA members wives’. The other 78 attendee’s lived closer to either the Houston or Fredericksburg reunion locations. Of the other 78 attendee’s 68 of them drove up from the Houston area for the reunion and then drove home. The question is should we continue to pay over $2,000 to continue the Crockett reunion to benefit roughly 40 people or should we ask the people from East Texas to drive down to the HPD police academy (off of I-45N and Rankin Road) to attend the Houston Reunion.

 I did a non-binding straw vote at this month’s meeting. A quick show of hands, from the 170 members in attendance, favored the discontinuation of the Crockett Reunion. The HPROA Board of Directors decided to put issue on our web-site to give all of our members a chance to give their opinion. We will discontinue this opinion poll the day before next month’s meeting.  “Only regular members can vote”. Associate members, spouses and children cannot vote. Our webmaster can determine if someone votes more than once.

Myself, and the Board of Directors of your HPROA, want to know how you feel about this issue.  Just click on your choice below and it will automatically be sent to Jim Ashby, who is one of your Directors and our web master.

Thanks for letting us know how you feel about this issue.

Yes, Keep the Reunion

No,  Discontinue the Reunion
