Patrol

The Old Braeswood Patrol is staffed by S.E.A.L. Security Solutions. The Patrol uses a marked, white, SUV police-type vehicle. The officers are drive and walk the neighborhood streets at varying hours throughout the week. Please take time to introduce yourself to our Patrol Officers. They are eager to get to know everyone and want neighbors to feel safe and secure in our neighborhood.

We strongly encourage you to call the new Patrol at 713-422-2770 whenever you see or encounter suspicious activity. Be sure to program the dispatch number into your cell phones. If you have questions or complaints about this service, please contact us at 713-807-1787 or info@oldbraeswood.com.

Patrol Facts

« The Patrol Officers are armed, private security contractors who provide value-added services such as vacation watch and phone dispatch.

« The Patrol Officers are inside our neighborhood 100% of their time, and are accountable through GPS monitoring. Their presence and ability to respond to calls immediately is a tremendous deterrent to crooks.

« The Patrol’s daily activities include investigating suspicious vehicles and persons in the neighborhood and asking them to leave if they have no legitimate business here, chasing off solicitors, logging license plate numbers of suspicious vehicles; vacation watch service (includes checking homes 3 times per day), meeting neighbors in person and getting to know who belongs in the neighborhood and who does not, responding to calls for assistance, checking out front doors left wide open and securing swinging gates, reporting 311 issues for attention and repair by city crews, presenting new neighbors with Patrol service information.

Prevent crime before it occurs. While the Patrol is a great crime deterrent, please do your part by following common sense crime prevention rules:

« Keep doors, windows, and gates closed and locked at all times

« Set your alarm when leaving your home

« Don’t let papers or FedEx deliveries build up on your lawn and porch while you are away (a clear signal that no one is at home)

« Always turn on your porch lights at night
