Security Alert
November 17, 2014

Hello Homeowners:

There have been two reports of thefts of packages left at the front door from deliveries such as USPS, UPS, and FEDEX. Several packages will be delivered in the next few weeks. Try to be home when you are expecting a delivery. When ordering, require a delivery signature and ask for a tracking number. Ask a "stay at home neighbor" if you can have your packages delivered to them if you will not be home. Do not let packages sit on your door step.

With the holidays just around the corner, remember, don't shop alone if possible and park in areas close by business doors or in well lighted areas. Don't flash large sums of money and always ask for your receipts back. Don't leave receipts behind as this could be the beginning of identity theft. Remember these receipts have your credit card numbers stamped on them. Remember to place ALL PURCHASES inside the trunk of your car if you are not going home immediately.

Crime usually increases around the holidays. Looking at the crime stats around the subdivision it seems as though burglaries of the home, buildings (garages) and vehicles are starting to slightly increase. Please take time to make sure each of the above items are secure and your alarms are set. It appears there has been a couple of reports in which unknown persons are entering garages and removing property.

If at any time you are a victim of a crime, report it immediately. DO NOT wait till you get home. Time is of essence when reporting a crime. Delaying will allow the suspect(s) to get further away and possibly commit crimes on other innocent people.

Harris County has set up a new website at http://www.co.harris.tx.us/pct5/. Homeowners can now complete Vacation Watches and Special Watches online. These forms will be delivered directly to each officer. Please visit this site for more information on Precinct 5, crime reports, traffic conditions, security tips and online forms.

When completing your vacation watch, please make sure that you circle "am" or "pm" so that we will know what time you will be leaving and/or returning to your home.

We are asking that everyone pay closer attention, and if you see anything suspicious, please call immediately. Make sure alarm permits are current, that you activate your alarm and inform your alarm company to make the Constables your first emergency contact.

FOR HOME SECURITY INSPECTIONS, A FREE HOME INSPECTION SURVEY, TO SAVE MONEY ON YOUR HOME INSURANCE OR GET SIMPLE SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO BETTER SECURE YOUR HOME, CALL THE PCT 5 CONSTABLE’S OFFICE AT 281-463-6666 AND ASK FOR SERGEANT MITCH HUTTER.

Report all suspicious persons and vehicles to the Constable's office at 281-463-6666. Your cooperation is always appreciated.

Sincerely, Sgt. Gonzales
