ADVICE FROM THE POLICE


Houston has problems with cars being broke into. We recommend that you put your car in your garage if possible. If not, please put everything out of sight, including small things like sunglasses.

Another common complaint is stolen bicycles. A bicycle can be stolen out of an open garage in seconds. Always lock up your bikes and kept your garage door closed, even if you will be gone for a few minutes.



USING 311


311 is a great resource for reporting non-emergency problems. You can call 311, go to their website below, or download their app.

311

Common reports to 311 include:
  • Garbage container problems
