• Port Lavaca's gain is Victoria College's loss. The VC Police Academy is outstanding and has never been better or more respected. Mr. Martinez worked to increase the level of professionalism and thereby raised respect for the program. Hopefully VC will find a suitable replacement, but that will be a very tall order indeed. Good luck to Mr. Martinez in his new endeavor.

  • Congratulations, Mr. Martinez. This just reaffirms my belief that some mighty fine men and women come from the Victoria College and University of Houston-Victoria police, criminal justice, and nonprofit leadership programs!
