HPD, City Councilmember Go Door-To-Door to Help Keep Houston Safe

March 29, 2010 - Police officers from the HPD Westside Patrol Division, together with Houston City Councilmember Al Hoang, went door-to-door today (Monday, March 29) educating residents on preventing burglaries of homes and motor vehicles.

HPD officers and Councilmember Hoang started the morning in the southwest Houston neighborhood of Park Glen before moving on to the Happy Village Apartments at 6301 Ranchester. Together, they handed out fliers and shared theft prevention tips with citizens.

“Criminals look for something easy to steal,” said HPD Sergeant Rick Ramos. “If it is a challenge for them, then they’ll move on.”

“It’s important to remain proactive and vigilant,” said Councilmember Hoang. “It’s great to have our officers proactively interacting with residents,” he said.

The effort was part of the Houston Police Department’s ongoing March on Crime Campaign. Working together, Houston police officers, Houston City Council, and the public can “Help Keep Houston Safe.”
