Our Hispanic Heritage Month spotlight wraps up with a look at none other than Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo. Since coming to Houston after his tenure as Chief of Police in Austin, Acevedo has become not only one of the more transparent city officials in recent memory but also a large proponent for civil liberties and rights.

Acevedo sits down with us to discuss how a Cuban immigrant such as himself rose to become Chief of Police and how the power of culture and identity helped shaped him as a leader.
