WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH- March 1st-March 31st
National Women’s History Month was established in 1987 as a way to celebrate women and their efforts to make the country, and world, a better place for women of all ages and races.
While America is full of influential women today, there were many trailblazers who came before them, paving the way. During the month of March, not only do we remember them, but continue to carry their torch onward because there is still work to be done.
The City of Hitchcock Police Department proudly celebrates Women's History Month as part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and promise to protect and serve our city with a police department that reflects and showcases the diversity of the city we serve.
Thank you ladies for all you do
The City of Hitchcock is located on Hwy 6 in Galveston County 10 north of Galveston and 30 miles south of Houston.
Hitchcock is a city in Galveston County, Texas, United States. The population was 6,386 at the 2000 census. Hitchcock was created as a station of the railroad between Galveston and Houston in 1873 and around the turn of the 20th century became a vegetable shipping center. The settlement's economy crashed in the 1930s after insect plagues in the surrounding areas, and the area stayed impoverished until the establishment of both an anti-aircraft training base and the Hitchcock Naval Air Station at the beginning of World War II.
