KPRC-2 reports on yesterday’s groundbreaking of a new HPD station for the South Central division.

The station will be named after Ronald E. McNair, an astronaut killed in the 1986 Challenger accident.

In attendance were Cheryl McNair (McNair’s widow), Mayor Bill White, and Police Chief Harold Hurtt.

The report did not indicate whether Hurtt has yet donned the HPD uniform.
