Patrol Bureau Accomplishments Central Division - Commander Sparrow
Central Division encompasses a large, diverse area that includes the Downtown Busi- ness community, Near Southside (Hospital District), Texas Wesleyan University down- town campus, and many historic neighborhoods immediately surrounding these areas. Included in the boundaries are the major shelters for homeless individuals and families. The business, medical, and educational communities located within this division create a significant transient population commuting to and from work each day. After busi- ness hours, the Central Business District transforms to a vibrant entertainment venue consisting of many popular restaurants, bars and events.

Lancaster Ave. The team is comprised of a Homeless Liaison, Neighborhood Police Officer, and two officers who are not subject to other calls in the area.
