Crime Prevention & Reporting
Residents, maintaining an awareness of your surroundings is one of the easiest and safest ways to avoid becoming a victim of crime. For example, when pulling into a busy parking lot, we often park in the first available space without looking at the surrounding area. Taking an extra minute observe your surrounds can help you avoid trouble.
The Kings River HOA contracted for an Advanced Crime Watch and Patrol Program (the “Program”) utilizing off duty police officers. The Program is administered by senior advisors that have a deep knowledge and experience in law enforcement and staffed by officers familiar with this area.
One of the primary goals of the Program is to have a visible police/security presence. This is accomplished by monitoring high traffic areas, posting signs at entrances to the subdivision and patrolling through key areas in a marked vehicle. This presence discourages criminals from operating in our neighborhood because it is not an easy target.
Additionally, the Program encourages interaction between the Program Coordinator and the residents. One of the Program senior advisors attends the bi-monthly HOA board meetings. The senior advisor provides an oral report on the incidents of the previous two months and follows up on any neighborhood issues brought to the HOA board’s attention. Also, our monitored website allows residents to privately report crimes, inform the officers of suspicious activity and/or let the officers know a resident will be on vacation so the address will be flagged for officers during their patrols. A report filed on the website is typically followed up by a Program representative in person or a phone call to ensure the resident and law enforcement are coordinated in remedying an issue.
Residents should continue to call 9-1-1 for emergency situations. Non-emergency calls should be directed to the Harris County Sheriff's Office at 713-221-6000.
Please use “File an Incident Report” to report any incidents. (including hog sightings)
