Public Safety  

A Strong Commitment to Your Security

The Energy Corridor District places a high priority on maintaining a safe environment for business owners, employees and residents. We foster public safety programs to insure that the District continues to be one of the most desirable commercial and residential areas in the City of Houston and Harris County.

Staffed by off duty Houston Police officers, the patrol uses marked vehicles and bicycles to increase police visibility in the District, respond to District concerns and proactively address potential safety issues while implementing long-term public safety solutions and code violations.

The HPD officers patrolling the District were selected based on their interpersonal skills and specialized training in community policing techniques. The Positive Interaction Program (PIP), consists of regularly held meetings for property owners, managers, security professionals and all those interested in public safety in The Energy Corridor District.  The Differential Response Team (DRT) enforces ordinances and quality of life issues to proactively reduce crime. And, Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) provides a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design.

A successful work place public safety and crime prevention program includes a commitment by management to provide and promote:

  • A safe working environment free from violence
  • Work place violence policies and procedures
  • An effective comprehensive and visible security plan
  • Taking an interest in your own personal safety. Be aware of your surroundings and the people in your surroundings
  • Developing a maintenance schedule to keep your security systems, lighting, gates and fences, etc. in proper working order

Security and Safety Requires Everyone's Participation

Create goodwill and heighten the sense of community by having interaction with business personnel and residential neighbors and patrol officers. By sharing your concerns, officers will become familiar with your safety needs and will be able to create patrol programs to meet those needs.
