Police chief inspires song

Larry Hargrove said he just had to write a song when he saw Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo driving downtown in a patrol car and in full uniform on New Year’s Eve.

Hargrove, a local musician, called the song “He’s the Chief of Police.”

Hargrove recorded the song with his son and put it on an album with 11 other songs that he is selling for $15, with $5 from every purchase going to Operation Blue Santa. The nonprofit is organized by the Police Department and raises money to buy Christmas presents for children.

Benny Aleman, president of Operation Blue Santa, said the extra help is something the nonprofit needs “because of hard economic times.”

Hargrove said he wrote the song after being impressed on New Year’s Eve by Acevedo’s work ethic. He then teamed up with Blue Santa to help raise money year-round for the organization.

Song about Art Acevedo helps Blue
Santa project

AUSTIN (KXAN) - Blue Santa , the program that delivers food and toys to families in need, hosted a big gala at the Broken Spoke. At that event, singer-songwriter Larry Shannon Hargrove, was in attendance.

"I saw the need for more funds," said Hargrove. "This has to be a year round event fundraising drive, because money is harder to raise this year. So, I wrote this song called ' He's the Chief of Police .'"

Hargrove's idea was to write a song about Art Acevedo and for every CD sold, $5 would go toward the Blue Santa program. After meeting Acevedo, Hargrove said writing the song was simple.

"After watching Art Acevedo actually driving a patrol car and is in full uniform, he sort of wrote the song himself," said Hargrove. "It was New Year's Eve, it was almost midnight, and I was downtown [in] Austin, Texas and the horn blew, and when [Acevedo] rolled the window down, he said 'Hey Larry!' And I said 'Oh my God, that's the chief. He's out here working on New Year's Eve.' So, I thought his brand of policing is special, and I think he's doing a wonderful job. So, we wrote [the] song."

The song is certainly full of great descriptions like his history with the California Highway Patrol and his famed nickname "rockstar." Lyrics like "he don't wear Brooks Brothers suits or hide behind a big desk" and "he's in full uniform, driving a patrol car and making arrests" will make many tap their foot.

The CD can be purchased at Waterloo Records on Sixth Street and Lamar Boulevard, or Music Mania at Interstate 35 and 38 1/2 Street (next to Fiesta). You can listen to the full song here .

Emotions run high at
East Side forum

Public Q&A about Sanders death

Updated: Tuesday, 02 Jun 2009, 10:05 AM CDT

AUSTIN (KXAN) - Emotions ran high at a community forum with city officials to provide information about the shooting death of Nathaniel Sanders by a police officer last month.

More than 300 people crowded into the Wilhelmina Delco Activity Center in Northeast Austin and at times, emotions boiled over. Police Chief Art Acevedo addressed the Sanders family, who was in attendance, directly.

"To Mr. Sanders and the Sanders family- from the bottom of my heart I apologize to you and your family. Your son should not have been out there that long," said Chief Acevedo, addressing concerns about the length of time Nathaniel Sanders body remained in the parking lot of the Walnut Creek Apartments on the morning of the shooting. Sanders body was not removed from the scene for more than five hours.

"What can we do to make sure that this doesn't happen to another one of our children in this community," asked Austin resident Larry Hargrove. He continued, "the camera, Chief, is a big issue."

Many people in the crowd expressed concern that Officer Quintana's dashcamera video was not rolling during the shooting. Chief Acevedo acknowledged the department's camera system is antiquated and in need of an upgrade.

"You can't put a price tag on public trust," said Chief Acevedo. "You can't put a price on the truth and we are not afraid of the truth."

The May 11 shooting death at 6409 Springdale Road caused an uproar among some in the community who protested the shooting, saying it could have been avoided.

City Manager Marc Ott, Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo, Police Monitor Cliff Brown and other City officials were in attendance.
