Law Enforcement Specialist 

Senior Officer Robert F. Garcia

Houston Police Department

Robert F. Garcia is a proud native of Houston, Texas. This is one of the main reasons he decided to join the Houston Police Department and serve his community by following in the footsteps of the numerous Family members that did so before him. He became a police officer in 2002 and has been assigned to the department’s Crime Analysis Division for 11 of those years.

After working nightshift at Central Patrol Division and the Security Detail for the HPD Headquarters Building, Robert began his career in Crime Analysis with no prior experience. Working this “other” side of the police department, he quickly saw the value and importance of all the various roles an analyst fills and dedicated himself to continuously learning. Under the tutelage of several senior officers and civilians, like Senior Criminal Intelligence Analyst Barry Fosberg, he has become an asset for the division and other analysts due to his knowledge and experience.

Along with the myriad of skills needed to be an effective analyst, Robert thinks people-skills, building networks of contacts, and information-sharing within his own agency and beyond are vital components of being a true force-multiplier. Robert chooses to be an active member of Greater Houston Law Enforcement Analysts (GHLEA), TXLEAN, and IACA as a result.

Serving on the TXLEAN Board as the Law Enforcement Specialist is a way for Robert to show the importance of membership and further the goal of information sharing by enhancing the links between agencies and all members.
