Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 130 (the “District”) contracts with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (“HCSO”) to provide law enforcement services to the District. The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the District considers the safety of the community, and the protection of the District’s residents and property, to be of the utmost importance; and values the service provided by HCSO and its deputies.
One of the benefits of contracting for these services is the increased visual presence of law enforcement on the streets within the District, and the deputies’ interaction with the community as a whole. Often, patrol vehicles may be stationary on a particular street, or adjacent to the District’s park facilities, for several minutes at a time. Keep in mind that such activities are not indicative of an active investigation by the deputy, and are not intended to single out a particular individual or residence on such street. This visual presence is invaluable as a deterrent to unwanted criminal activity, and helps to instill peace of mind to the people who live in the District, walk its streets, and use its recreational facilities.
If you ever have any questions concerning HCSO’s activities within the District, please do not hesitate to attend a meeting of the Board. A representative of HCSO will be present. The Board meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 11:30 a.m. typically at the address listed above, and the meetings are open to the public. However, due to COVID-19, the Board is conducting the meetings remotely, via Zoom, with log in information available at least 72 hours prior to the meeting at https://www.sklawdistrictdata.org/harris-county/harris-county-municipal-utility-district-no-130/.
