As stated at Houston Police Online, “The mission of the Houston Police Department is to enhance the quality of life in the City of Houston by working cooperatively with the public and within the framework of the U.S. Constitution to enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce fear and provide for a safe environment.”

Policing a metro area of nearly 4 million is a big job, as you might have guessed. And the Houston Police Department does an excellent job in performing its mission.

911 Emergency

To report an emergency requiring the attention of the Houston police department, don’t hesitate to dial 911.

While other police jurisdictions police surrounding suburban neighborhoods, the 911 emergency reporting system addresses all of the greater Houston metro area.

To review crime statistics in any Houston apartment neighborhood, see neighborhood crime stats and follow the instructions.

We found the Houston Police Online web site so interesting, we recommend that you have a look and familiarize yourself with the volumes of information that are presented and made available to the public.
