HOMEOWNERS - BE VIGILANT

There has been a lot of reporting about home invasions in the Houston area recently.  Some of the reports tell us that the perpetrators enter a home and steal personal property.  Some reports have even described invasions where homeowners were hurt or worse.  We have been very fortunate in our neighborhood not to have had the "criminals" target us...that is until December 19, 2008.

One of our homeowners had their home broken into while they were at work.  Fortunately, their alarm system scared off the invader.  There was damage to the front door but thankfully no one was harmed.

We have security officers working in our neighborhood every day, but they cannot be everywhere, every hour, every day.  We even have the support of the Houston Police department officers who patrol our neighborhood at various times.  

So, what should be do to protect our property?  If you have an alarm system, be sure that it is on.  It seems that most of our homeowners do have alarm systems.  If you do not have an alarm system, you might consider having one installed.  As one neighbor found out, IT WORKED TO SCARE AWAY THE CRIMINAL!

Our patrol officers are aware of the situation and will continue to monitor suspicious activity in our neighborhood.  "If you see something that seems out of the ordinary, say something".  If it appears that it could be life-threatening, Call 911.  Help us to keep our neighborhood safe!

Keep Houston Safe


What is “Keep Houston SAFE?”

Keep Houston SafeKeep Houston SAFE is a citywide public safety campaign involving a collaborative partnership between citizens, businesses, and the Houston Police Department. The main focus of the campaign is crime prevention and the implementation of proactive enforcement efforts and measures aimed at the reduction of criminal incidents, rather than responding to them after they have occurred. Simply, the goal of the Keep Houston SAFE campaign is to prevent crime.

Crime Prevention requires the active cooperation of all members of the community. The Houston Police Department is working hard to catch the “bad guys” and put them behind bars, but we are counting on you, the citizens, to work together in the fight against crime. In fact, the Houston Police Department believes this team effort is so important that it is mentioned in the department’s mission statement, which states in part, that the department will strive to enhance the quality of life in the city of Houston by working cooperatively with the public to prevent crime.


HOUSTON is a dynamic city with hard-working citizens who want a safe city. We need everyone to become involved and be energized in their efforts to protect themselves, family, and hard-earned property.


Join the Houston Police Department’s crime fighting team to Keep Houston SAFE!





How can citizens help “Keep Houston SAFE?”

By pledging and practicing basic crime prevention, citizens will reduce the opportunities criminals look for when targeting a crime victim. Crime prevention starts with each person, family, and home. If we all do our part to fight crime and make it as hard as possible for a criminal to identify a crime victim, we are helping to Keep Houston SAFE.



The positive result is the reduction of crime and a safer Houston. Take the time to review the crime prevention material provided by the Houston Police Department. Sign the “Keep Houston SAFE” pledge form and become a part of the solution. Remember that Crime Prevention starts with you.



Crime Prevention is the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it.
