I appreciate the continued support of our patrollers. In the past month we have experienced a sharp increase in crime in our once quiet neighborhood.  HPD has promised to increase their presence through more patrol officers and through detectives continuing to follow leads based on criminals’ patterns.

Crime Statistics

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.

Vehicle Burglary Prevention Tips

  • Lock your valuables and electronics in trunk or take them in your house
  • Remove all interior valuables from plain view
  • Lock your doors and roll up all windows
  • Return to the store/office/house and call police if anyone looks or acts suspicious.  Do not continue to your vehicle
  • BE AWARE of your surroundings
  • Do not jeopardize your safety for convenience
  • At home, if possible, put your car in a garage or at least in the driveway
  • Park only in well-lighted areas

I encourage everyone to install motion activated flood lights for their driveways and parking areas.  If anyone needs help, we have volunteers that will help install lights if you choose to purchase them.
