The Briarbend Community Improvement Association
is committed to ensuring safety in our neighborhood.
Therefore, Briarbend is contracted with an off-duty
police officers to patrol the neighborhood.
Use the Houston Police Department as your first
point of contact for emergencies or minor security
incidents. But please also report any incident to the
Briarbend Security Committee as soon as possible.
This helps to ensure that our patrol officer, the
Board and other neighbors are aware of
neighborhood incidents quickly and can work
together to prevent any future security issues.
The Briarbend board voted to implement a Flock Safety camera system starting in 2022 that will be accessible to the Houston Police Department and the Briarbend Security Patrol. Flock Security has a Hot List feature that alerts police when a vehicle passes by a camera if the vehicle is on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC) hot list.
In the case of an emergency, always call 911 for assistance.
