National Night Out

National Night Out is quickly approaching. It is set for Tuesday evening, October 5th, 2010.  We encourage you to talk to your neighbors and block captain to plan a gathering for your block.  We should all use this opportunity to welcome new neighbors and spend time catching up with old friends.   National Night Out is a nation-wide program designed to raise crime prevention awareness, generate support for anticrime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and to send a message to criminals that we are fighting back! Our City of Houston National Night Out coordinator has asked for us to come up with something special to do for our National Night Out parties.   The Houston Police Department is once again collecting non-perishable food items to donate to the Houston Food Bank.  This would allow us all to assist those less fortunate than ourselves during these tough economic times.  Let’s try to make a difference in their lives!

Citizens on Patrol
Since we are experiencing a rise in criminal activity we are in need of more neighbors actively patrolling our streets to help curb this trend. I urge everyone to contact me so that I can schedule a COP training class for you. Just a few minutes a week can really make a big difference in keeping Lazybrook safe. Patrolling is as easy as driving or riding a bike through the neighborhood with a cell phone and calling in any suspicious persons or activities. We will train you, the hours are flexible to fit any schedule, and you are reimbursed for the cost of gas. Please email lazybrook.security@gmail.com to let me know if you are interested.
