Community Safety Outreach Programs for The Woodlands

Community Safety Outreach Programs for The Woodlands

From The Woodlands Township:

"Today, our outreach programs extend beyond the neighborhood. We not only reach out to the single-family neighborhoods but also include youth, multi-family and senior citizen communities. Our programs assume that people care about each other and their community. Programs offered effectively build bridges between residents and public safety. The sense of community developed through these programs promotes a safer community. These outreach programs are developed to bring services to residents of The Woodlands. -- a sense of community . . . a safe community."


Woodlands Watch
Woodlands Watch is an expanded neighborhood watch program. As the name implies, it is neighbor watching out for neighbor with care and concern. These neighbors are the eyes and ears of our community. An alert neighbor is in an excellent position to observe any unusual activity on his street. Through this program residents also learn about fire prevention, fire safety and handling emergencies.  More information

Volunteer Coordinator
A Volunteer Coordinator is the essential key to the entire Watch program. The volunteer coordinator serves as Watch liaison to the neighborhood, disseminates public safety education material and coordinates Watch events in the neighborhood.  Meetings and neighborhood events can be held to satisfy each neighborhood's own particular interests by selecting from the many outreach programs available.

Apartment Watch
Apartment Watch addresses specific educational and safety needs of those residing in multi-unit dwellings. Buildings become neighborhoods. Working in partnership with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department and the Montgomery County Constable Precinct #3, our goal is to promote safer apartment communities. Meetings are held every other month with all apartment managers from our community and surrounding area. Information sharing, crime and fire prevention education is promoted.

Campus Watch
Campus Watch promotes crime prevention education for youth and opens communication between students, administrators, campus and community police. This program, which started at Knox Junior High and now includes The Woodlands High School-Main Campus, The Woodlands High School-McCullough Campus and Bear Branch Crossing Junior High, is in partnership with the C.I.S.D. Police and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department. Campus Watch addresses the specific educational and safety needs of our youth. Our goal is to promote a safe environment for students to learn.

Senior Watch
Senior Watch addresses the educational and safety needs of those residing in multiunit dwellings. Hallways become neighborhoods. Our program coordinator visits senior complexes monthly in partnership with the senior advocate of Interfaith, a non-profit agency. A special effort is made to include medical information and names of relatives on residents' emergency information sheet. This information is then entered into a computer system for easy access, and shared with The Woodlands Fire Department Dispatch/Communication Center.

Watch Meeting
A Watch Meeting is a structured neighborhood meeting that introduces the roles of public safety agencies into the neighborhood, before emergencies occur. The meeting also facilitates the first step in crime prevention, neighbor meeting neighbor. Representatives from The Woodlands Fire Department, Montgomery County Sheriff's Department and the Community Associations' Neighborhood Services staff participate. This same event can also be held in neighborhood parks.

Park Watch Meeting
A Park Watch Meeting is a proactive community effort to resolve resident issues, concerns, criminal activities, and to deter future crimes in a park and the surrounding neighborhood. Representatives from The Woodlands Fire Department, Montgomery County Sheriff's Department/Woodlands Division, the Neighborhood Services department and Park Rangers participate.

Good Neighbor Day
A Good Neighbor Day brings services of the Community Associations and various public safety agencies to the neighborhood. The Good Neighbor Day generally targets a specific street or group of streets. It facilitates neighbors getting to know each other. Additionally, they can register bicycles; fingerprint children; receive crime and fire prevention tips and 9-1-1 emergency information; and learn more about The Woodlands.

Neighborhood Involvement Day
A Neighborhood Involvement Day has many of the same characteristics as a Good Neighbor Day, but on a grander scale. A Neighborhood Involvement Day encourages residents to rejuvenate community spirit, reacquaint themselves with their neighbors, reeducate themselves on community services and public safety issues.


Meet Your Neighbor in the Park
Meet Your Neighbor in the Park is held on weekdays to encourage positive use of our parks during non-peak hours. This program utilizes public safety agencies and the Parks and Recreation Department. Senior citizens meet new residents and renew old friendships during a guided walk to their neighborhood park.
