Crime Statistics for 8C40's Beat
Beat Description and Boundary:
The boundary begins at the intersection of FM 527 (also called East Houston and Mesa Road) and Tidwell and goes east along the south lot lines of Tidwell to the Houston City Limits. It follows the city limits south to Halls Bayou and continues to follow the city limits as they turn east along the bayou about half a mile. The city limits then turn north about a quarter mile and then turn east about one and a quarter miles, going around Brock Park to John Ralston Road. It turns south and west along John Ralston Road, then southeast along Scenic River until it ends at Greens Bayou. The beat boundary continues to follow the city limits south along Greens Bayou to the SPRR railroad. It turns southwest along the railroad track to FM 527. It turns north on FM 527 to Tidwell which is where it begins.
Because it has the best access via John Ralston Road, Garret, and Lake Houston Parkway, 8C40 is responsible for the southwest corner of Lake Houston. This area includes the area on the east side of the Lake Houston Dam west until Duessen Parkway dead ends north at an inlet of Lake Houston, and east to the lakeshore.
