Harris County sheriff visits troubled teens at juvenile facility
Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman traveled to the far northwest corner of the county to meet with a group of troubled teens. He went to teach, but also learn. He went to listen to people who are accustomed to not being heard. Hickman visited the TAPS Academy in Hockley, located just northwest of Houston on U.S. 290. The TAPS Academy is home to nearly 100 teens between 13 and 17 who have been convicted of adult crimes. Both boys and girls live at the academy.
