We are pleased to announce that our communities now have TWO full-time patrol officers. Deputy Oscar Martinez is our new, full-time patrol officer working with Deputy Ivan Gonzalez. If you attended the Neighborhood Watch meeting in October, you were able to meet Deputy Oscar Martinez. Houston El Norte POA Board of Directors voted to add the second patrol officer. Our Board of Directors consists of John Harris, Olga Summers, Deyanira Palacios, Silvia Aguilar, Robin Lane, Tedra Ortega and Trey Harris.
Until Deputy Oscar Martinez could begin on October 25th, we had 40 hours of extra patrol completed throughout a ten (10) day period in order to address daytime robbery issues that have occurred.

Non-Emergency Numbers to Report Suspicious Activity:

TIPS: If you were burglarized and do not file charges against the person who robbed you, there is a big chance this person who burglarized you will do the same to other neighbors. A robber was caught by patrol officers on duty but no charges were filed by the victim. As people are moving into a new community and acting as their own builder, constructions materials and tools should not be left in the open or unattended. Protect your investment. Lock and secure your home, belongings and cars. Purchase a hunting camera (<$60.00 on Amazon).
For Security Systems that require internet, AT&T is still working in part of Grand San Jacinto and Camino Real. AT&T was unresponsive for some time and has not replied with a completion date. It is our understanding the previous project manager is no longer working on the project and someone new is now handling the project. https://reolink.com/solutions-for-wireless-security-cameras-without-internet-access/ If the cable was installed in front of your property, then service should be available for phone and internet: https://www.att.com/shop/unified/availability.html
