PEARLAND, Texas — The City of Pearland has seen explosive growth in recent years and keeping residents safe in one of the country’s fastest growing cities can be a challenge in and of itself.

As the community expands, Pearland police officers are doing their part to make sure the community remains safe.

Pearland police officer Chad Rogers said it’s about reminding people that police officers are the good guys.

The city has more than 60 events planned for National Night Out.

Rogers said he has been with Pearland PD for 13 years. In that time, he’s seen the city’s population boom.
