Twenty-year police officer has two cousins on the force

2014 January 16
by HISD Communications

Officer Jimmy Mapp Jr.

Law enforcement runs in the family of Jimmy Mapp Jr. The campus officer, who currently serves at the Sam Houston Math, Science, and Technology Center, has two relatives who also work on the district’s police force: cousins Clifton Mapp and Richard McColister.

Jimmy and Richard, who are the same age, entered the police force only 12 months apart more than two decades ago. Clifton, who is younger, followed them a few years later.

“Clifton is a cousin on my dad’s side,” explained Mapp. “His father was an officer in Precinct 6, and he inspired me— all of us, I guess—to become an officer.”

Over the years, Mapp has served at several other campuses, including E. O. Smith, Davis and Yates high schools, and Burbank, Clifton, and McReynolds middle schools.

    Officer Mapp was a valued asset to the McReynolds learning community. He helped to bridge the gap for me to the Fifth Ward and Denver Harbor communities as a new Assistant Principal. His Spanish is impressive!!! Congratulations to Mapp on twenty years of service.
