Crime Prevention

Home Security Inspections

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

Neighborhood Watch operates under two principles:

  1. Neighbors getting to know and watch out for each other, and
  2. 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.

Property Protection

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.

Crime Stoppers

Call 1-800-253-STOP (toll free) if you have information about any crime. No one will ever learn your identity.

If your information leads to a warrant and criminal arrest, you will receive up to a:

$2000 CASH REWARD
"Crime doesn't pay. Crime Stoppers does."

Please read more about Williamson County Crime Stoppers.

Crime Prevention Presentations

Sheriff's officers are available to make presentations to any group, at schools, youth organizations, churches, scouts, or civic clubs. These presentations can be tailored to particular topics such as personal safety or gang awareness, and given in conjunction with others. 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.

If you are interested, please call (512) 943-1353 to arrange for a presentation by the Williamson County Sheriff's Office.

Drug Awareness

Williamson County Sheriff's officers are available to conduct D.A.R.E.® courses in public or private schools. These courses have a set curriculum over several weeks covering drug and violence prevention education for children in kindergarten through 12th grade. Sheriff's officers have received many hours of special training to be equipped with all the skills they need to teach a course in drug resistance and violence avoidance techniques. Although the courses vary by age group, D.A.R.E.® lessons focus on:

  • providing accurate information about alcohol and drugs
  • teaching students decision-making skills
  • showing them how to resist peer pressure
  • giving them ideas for alternatives to drug use and violence

For more information, please see the D.A.R.E.® Web site or call the Williamson County Sheriff's Office at (512) 943-1353.

Senior Citizen Safety

Triad 

Triad is a program sponsored by AARP Criminal Justice Services, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the National Sheriff's Association. The first priority is to reduce crimes against the elderly, but activities may also address fear of crime and reassure seniors of actions they can take. The S.A.L.T. (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) Council administers Triad activites which may include:

  • surveys of the needs and concerns of older citizens
  • reassurance programs including Adopt-a-Senior, senior visitation, and telephone reassurance
  • alerts to seniors about current frauds, scams, and other crimes which may affect them
  • and other programs such as home security checks, safe walks and shopping for seniors, parking lot/handicapped parking patrols, and crime prevention seminars to meet the needs of senior citizens in Williamson County.

Call (512) 943-1351 for more information.

We have volunteer opportunities to help with the Triad Program in Williamson County. Please call (512) 943-1351 for more information.
