senior-crime-preventionOn Monday, October 10, 2016, Council Member Larry Green, HPD officers from the Houston Police Department’s Community Services Unit, community agencies and businesses, teamed up to help senior citizens prevent home burglaries. The teams provided home security surveys as well as crime prevention brochures and tips.

The event was held at the Hiram Clarke Multi Service Center, located at 3810 W. Fuqua. During the resource fair, senior citizens were encouraged to sign up for free home security surveys that will be provided by a certified HPD officer. These security upgrades will be installed, free of charge.

This event was one of four home security survey initiatives provided to elderly residents throughout the city who need help making their homes secure. Citizens on Patrol and the Police and Clergy Alliance were also available to speak with and provide resources to the residents in attendance.
