Ogg Statement on New HPD Chief

March 18, 2021 

I applaud the choice of Troy Finner to lead the Houston Police Department. I’ve known Chief Finner since 1994. Back then we worked together to develop innovative and effective ways to combat crime in the Gulfton area. I have full confidence that we can combat crime and treat the community fairly in the future on a citywide basis. He is well liked and well respected and can bring a sense of unity and public safety to the community.
