The Woodstream Board of Directors has implemented an Advanced Crime Watch and Patrol Program (the “Program”) utilizing off duty Houston Police Department police officers. The Program is managed by local Kingwood residents who have a deep knowledge and experience in law enforcement. Importantly, it is staffed by officers familiar with our community who work this area during their normal 40 hour work week.

One of the primary goals of the Program is to have a very visible police and security presence. This is accomplished by monitoring high traffic areas, posting signs at entrances to the subdivision, and patrolling Woodstream in a marked vehicle. This presence discourages criminals from operating in our neighborhood.

One of the Program supervisors will attend our monthly community association board meeting to report on any incidents of the previous month and follow up on any neighborhood issues brought to the board’s attention. The Program includes a monitored website allowing residents to report crimes, inform officers of suspicious activity, or let officers know a resident will be on vacation so that the resident’s address may be flagged for officers during their patrols. Any report filed on the web site by residents will be followed up by a Program representative in person, phone call, or email to ensure that the resident and law enforcement are coordinated in remedying security and patrol issues.

Additionally and importantly, the Program encourages interaction between police officers and the residents of Woodstream. We ask that you please join with your Woodstream neighbors to closely watch what is going on in our neighborhood and immediately report any suspicious activity.
