Please call (512) 943-1353 to arrange for a free home security inspection by the Williamson County Sheriff's Office. You can arrange for a time for an officer to come to your home and inspect your property. Because the officer is certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standard and Education, he is trained in home security techniques and may suggest security improvements. The officer can also file a report of his findings with the Texas Department of Insurance, which may qualify you for as much as a 15% reduction in your homeowners insurance premiums.
Neighborhood Watch operates under two principles:
Neighbors getting to know and watch out for each other, and
Neighbors watching out for each others property as though it were there own.
The participants make their neighborhood a safer place to live by adopting a more observant attitiude, and, as a result, become more aware of strange cars, persons, or circumstances. This will not take a lot of time, and soon will develop into a daily habit of becoming more aware of what is going on in the neighborhood.
If you would like a Neighborhood Watch program in your area, talk with neighbors and friends to define the boundary of the area to be watched, then call the Williamson County Sheriff's office at (512) 943-1353 to ask for help from a crime prevention officer.
The Texas Action Council on Theft sponsors POP, a decal identification program for valuable personal items. POP provides the following:
Window decals warning potential burglars that the property on the premises is permanently marked by POP identification labels.
Identification labels imprinted with your drivers license. These labels can not be removed or altered without leaving a "footprint" which can only be seen using special equipment, thereby helping law enforcement officials trace stolen goods to their rightful owners.
Please call 1-800-286-9801 for more information including costs and how to order.
Call 1-800-253-STOP (toll free) if you have information about any crime. No one will ever learn your identity.

Presentations are given to kids of most every age level, from kindergartners through high school. Presentations can also be given to parents, other adults, and seniors to help them with the skills and knowledge they need for crime awareness.
