Outdoor Educational Workshop (1 of 12 part series)
“Texans Gone Skiing” - For some people skiing is more than just a sport, it is a way of life.

Join Briarhills resident, Constantin Platon, for a FREE class to learn about ski equipment, ski technique, ski vacation destinations, prices, logistics and tips on how to make your vacation a dream come true. Constantin has over 20+ years skiing experience and would love to meet you and help prepare you for your next ski trip! Join Constantin at the clubhouse on Thursday, January 30th at 7:00 p.m.

Notices
 
Burglary on Trailville
Please see below message from our neighborhood Constables regarding a burglary that occurred on Saturday, January 18, on Trailville.

Today at around 4:20pm, a house located on the 13800 block of Trailville Dr was burglarized. A Hispanic male knocked on the door and tricked the homeowner by saying they were working on the backyard fence and needed her to help identify her property line. When the homeowner went to the backyard, another male went into the house to look for items to steal. The males were gone before the homeowner knew what happened.

As a reminder, the phone number for the Precinct 5 Constables is 281-463-6666. Please report any suspicious persons or vehicles or other police related matters immediately to the Constables and not Houston Police Department. The Constables are patrolling in our neighborhood every day and their response time is much faster than if you were to call Houston Police Department.

Please advise residents about the scam and to notify our dispatch ASAP if they see these suspects again. The suspects are described as 1 Hispanic male and 2 black or Hispanic males. All of them between 30-35 years old and medium build.

Suspect vehicle is a very distinctive newer truck with a canopy on the back and appears to be a Ford. See picture.
 
 
Reminders from the Constable
Suspicious persons have been seen in the neighborhood.
 
If you see people of any age in places they should not be day or night immediately call the constable on 281-463-6666. When the operator asks whether it is an emergency, say "Yes."
When reporting suspicious persons try to give a description of the person from head to feet starting with hat, hair, glasses, facial hair, race, color of clothing and direction of travel. The more information available the better chance of the subject being located.
 
Keep your garage doors closed. An open garage door, whether the main entrance or side door, is an invitation to burglars shopping the neighborhood.
 
Keep all your car doors locked and windows rolled up if you park your car on your driveway, even for a very short time,
e.g. while unloading shopping.
REMOVE all valuables from plain view and lock valuable items in the trunk,
DO NOT leave any articles of value in your car overnight (laptops, money, wallets, purses, etc.)
Theft from unlocked cars is one of the most common crimes in this area.
 
Constable Programs
Our Constable offers more services than just vacation watches.  There are programs for adults, teens, and children.  The Constable offers classes on bully prevention, on line safety, personal safety, and even a Citizen's Police Academy.
For more information, click here:  Harris County Pct 5 Programs 
 
Vacation Watches
Click here for an online Vacation Watch Request form.
 
It is recommended that you add the constable's phone number to your cell phone Contacts List and also give your cell phone number to your home security company.
 
Local Emergency Information
Constable:  281-463-6666
 
Houston Leash Law
Animal Control has been called for loose dogs in our neighborhood. For information about the Houston leash law, fines, and where to call when your loose dog has been impounded, visit the BARC Animal Shelter & Adoptions at BARC.
 
The city's leash laws prohibit dogs from running loose. Loose dogs are a danger to themselves, other pets and residents. Please keep your dogs under your direct control while they are out of your house or fenced yard.
 

Super Neighborhoods
A super neighborhood is a geographically designated area where residents, civic organizations, institutions and businesses work together to identify, plan, and set priorities to address the needs and concerns of their community.
The super neighborhood elects a council comprised of area residents and stakeholders that serves as a forum to discuss issues and identify and implement priority projects for the area.
More information on Super Neighborhoods can be found at the Super Neighborhoods website
