Meet the Speaker


Sgt. Tracy Hicks has been with the Houston Police Department (HPD) for twenty-five years, eleven years in Auto Theft. Prior to joining HPD, he was a US Army Apache Helicopter pilot for eleven years.

As you may already know, there’s been a recent rash of automobile break ins — many perpetrated upon unlocked vehicles.

Did you know that BMVs are a highly preventable crime but how can they be prevented?  Did you know that theft of the vehicle itself is a gateway crime?  Gateway to what? And what in world is a “jugger” and a “slider?”

Come to this meeting for answers and hear what Sgt. Hicks has to say about why auto theft is such a big business and why it’s growing; what are the most popular stolen vehicles; how do car thieves operate; and what are popular places for break-ins.  Learn how to make you and your vehicle less desirable targets and about anti-theft measures like VIN etching.

Resolve to get involved with the TMCC in 2018. Mark your calendar now to attend not only our next General Meeting on November 14, but the first meeting of the new year. It will be held Tuesday, January 9 at 7 PM in the Sinclair Elementary cafeteria.
