Constable Patrol: November 2015 / by Mark Sternfels

Newsletter readers: To view charts of crime stats please visit this article on the WHCA website.

Theft from vehicles was down for November, but please don’t leave valuables in your car especially at local businesses. The City of Houston lags in releasing summary monthly crime stats. To stay more current and to get details for our neighborhood, about once a week I monitor daily crime reports and accumulate the data to arrive at the report presented here.

We remind everyone for a crime in progress please call 911 first principally because we do not have 24/7 deputy coverage. If our deputies are on duty they should be monitoring those calls, though you can also call Precinct One dispatch after calling 911 for crimes in progress.

Our deputies are motivated to keep the neighborhood safe though one lap around the perimeter of our neighborhood is a bit over 3 miles so there is a lot of ground to cover. Feedback from you is an important tool so please do not hesitate to call Precinct One if you see something that doesn’t seem right.

Our deputies come to work in our neighborhood and remain through their shift unless they are called to respond to a nearby contract. The deputies spend their shift cruising the neighborhood.  When they stop to look at something or take some action they keep a log so we have a general idea of their activities. For November 2015 here is some of their activity:
