The new HPD police station for southwest Houston is located at the 13000 block of Nitida Street and its grand opening took place on December 15, 2017.

Mayor Sylvester Turner and several members of the City Council hosted Friday a grand opening ceremony for a new Houston Police Department (HPD) station that will cover the southwest section of the city.

The station, which got the green light when Annise Parker was mayor, is located at 13097 Nitida Street and replaces the old southwest HPD station on the 4500 block of Beechnut.

The mayor’s office highlighted in a news release that “the growing needs of the community necessitated the move to a larger, updated patrol station.”

The new station is in District K, which Larry Green represents in the City Council. Green said during the event that it “will have a positive impact on police response times.”

One of the main features of the new facility is a 2,300 square foot community room.

HPD Chief Art Acevedo noted the community room will help his staff “build relationships of trust” with the people who live in southwest Houston.
