Houston Police Chief: ‘All of Hearts Break’ for Drowned Officer We Will ‘Continue on in His Honor’

‘I’m just very hopeful today will be the day we finally rescue everybody that we know about’


ACEVEDO: "There’s something really special about the Houston Police Department. Our people love what they do. At that age of 61 or 60, 61, a lot of police officers by that age end up wanting to retire, but retirement wasn’t in his mind, service was. I’ve only been here for nine months as police chief. And the second they told me he was missing, I knew who he was because I had met him several times. I think all of our hearts break. But we’re going to continue on in his honor."
