  • Build a network of people who will help them reach their goals

HPD to Homeowners: Help Us, Help You Protect Your Home

The Houston Police Department wants to help you make your home as safe as possible and a nuisance to would-be burglars.

For example, many intruders enter through weak doors.  Having strong doors and door frames, including garage doors, is essential to your security. Steel doors and frames provide enhanced security because they are harder to destroy.  If you have hollow-core doors, it is recommended you replace them with a sturdier type.  There are wooden doors being manufactured to withstand a tremendous amount of pressure from would-be burglars.

Secure windows and sliding glass doors can be secured with a locking device placed along the track. A broomstick or a wooden rod may work just as well if placed on the track between the door frame and the door.  Glass sliding doors are usually secluded from public view and special care must be taken to secure them. Bolt locks can be installed to help prevent the door from being opened or removed from its track.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Houston's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program, part of the Mayor's Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security, "trains ordinary citizens in how to help themselves and their neighbors in the event of disasters.  In addition, because of the training that CERT volunteers undergo, they are often called upon to assist in organizing disaster response as well."
