These short educational films, hosted by Jimmy Medellin and George Vasquez, Jr., explore various aspects of Brownsville's history and modern life. Each film combines background on the subject with live interviews and onsite footage. Unfortunately this episode is not complete. In it, Jimmy Medellin presents the many facets of the Brownsville Police Department, including the bicycle and motorcycle patrols, the K9 unit,and the 911 dispatch center. Brownsville Police Chief Victor Rodriguez talks about the department - the young average age of the force, the high percentage of officers who are Brownsville natives, and the impact on the community of Brownsville's specific crime problems, and Jimmy Medellin shadows an officer on a typical Friday night.
In 1947, the Brownsville Historical Association opened Brownsville’s first history museum at Fort Brown.

The organization also provides programming at its several venues on a year-round basis.
