Harris County MUD 148 has contracted with the Harris County Sheriff's Office to provide additional patrols to bring additional peace of mind and security to residents and facilities in the District.
Every patrol officer is a fully-sworn peace officer for law enforcement purposes.
Patrol officers wil be operating marked and unmarked vehicles to prevent criminals from learning their schedule or anticipating their presence.
So, when you see the patrols pass by, give them a wave and a "thank you" for their hard work keeping the neighborhood safe!

Tips for Safeguarding your Home
- Collapse all boxes placed curbside for trash pickup, making them indistinguishable. This eliminates a glimpse in to recently purchased contents (like a big TV box).
- Keep garage doors closed and locked if possible.
- Lock all windows.
- Lock your car doors.
- If going out of town, have a neighbor or friend collect your mail, shuffle the cars parked in the driveway, and alternate which lights are left on in the house at night. This prevents the home from looking vacant.
