The Heights Constable Patrol zone is defined by the outlined area in the map to the left.

The Heights Constable program is a supplemental police force of currently four deputies hired to patrol the greater Heights area, including your neighborhood. The Houston Heights Association is seeking new subscribers for the program July 1 through December 31, 2017. All residents and business owners are strongly encouraged to participate, as the program, which benefits the entire neighborhood, is funded solely by paid subscriptions.

Program Overview
Under this program, each of the four deputies works 40 hours a week on staggered shifts, patrolling in marked cars for high visibility to help deter crime.

They also:
• answer alarms calls
• respond to HPD dispatch
• perform vacation watches
• complete free home security inspections for subscribers
• write tickets and make arrests

Why Pay to Subscribe?
Paid subscribers also have a direct phone contact with the Precinct 1 dispatcher for a quicker response time to any calls or reports of suspicious activity, either by the deputy on patrol or a nearby deputy. Paid subscription even comes with vacation watch services, special watches for unusual circumstances, and free home security inspections.

While the cost of the program has increased, the subscription fee for 2017 will remain the same.

The Constable Patrol program raises the level of security in our neighborhood, and is only possible through paid subscriptions.

The number one crime in the area is thefts. Most of those are auto break-ins. Do not leave valuables in your car. Criminals will size up a car within a few seconds and look for things like brief cases, bags, computers, phones, and even chargers. Also please report all crimes no matter how small. This helps HPD as well as the deputies know crime patterns and determine hot spots. You can contact the deputies to help file your report or click here to file online with HPD.
