Security Committee Responsibilities

The Security Committee oversees the off-duty, HPD, part-time employees who patrol the neighborhood in WMCC patrol cars.  Currently, our private Security Patrol Program has two patrol cars and employs 11 Houston Police Department (HPD) Officers.

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." (from the Houston CERT Program web site)

For more information about the CERT program, you can view the presentation that was given at the March 2012 General Meeting, visit the Houston CERT Program web site and/or the CERT Willow Meadows Facebook page, or contact the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Security Fund

Money donated to the Security Fund goes toward adding more patrol hours, with associated costs, to the baseline number funded from the WMCC Assessment (Dues).

The 2014 Budget funds only 60 hours per week for the Security Patrol.  Thanks to donations on average of $25,000 per year over the last few years, we have consistently staffed at much higher coverage levels than the dues provide.  In order to achieve the hoped-for 76 hours per week this year, we will again need at least $25,000 in donations or we will have to reduce the planned patrol hours to reflect this donation shortfall.  Conversely, if donations increase, we can provide even more patrol hours.

Donated funds are accessed only after we have exhausted the assessment-generated funds.

Holiday Bonus Fund

Money donated to the Holiday Bonus Fund is proportionately distributed to our Security Patrol Officers in late November as a "Thank You" for their great work and support.

Each year the patrol officers send many thank you and/or holiday cards to the Security Committee thanking our residents for the generous Holiday Bonus.  If you appreciate what our brave, hard-working off-duty HPD Officers do for us, please show them your appreciation by also donating to the Holiday Bonus Fund.
