The quiet little neighborhood of Ella Lee Forest nestled in Houston, Texas

Crime Prevention

Ella Lee Forest participates in the Houston Police Department sponsored program called Citizen Patrol which helps to organize, train and equip the community to better protect their neighborhoods.  Although we enjoy relatively low incident of crime, we still recognize the power in organizing to keep our neighborhood safe and prevent crime that may otherwise occur.

The goals of the Citizen Patrol program are:

  • To provide an effective method of discouraging neighborhood crimes and “decline.”
  • To promote a friendly and safer neighborhood environment while respecting the privacy and rights of all citizens.
  • To encourage awareness and provide improved communication among neighbors.
  • To upgrade the quality of life and property values in the area.

For more information about this program see the HPD Citizen Patrol Brochure.
