                      LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY, CALL 9-1-1 FIRST!

HPD Non-Emergency Phone: 713-884-3131

If you have a non-threatening emergency or need to call our Security Patrol
officers for help or assistance or to report a suspicious person or incident
in our neighborhood, you can call the officers cell phone number above while
they are on patrol. We do not publish the Security Patrol schedule to keep it
from falling into the hands of the criminals, so if you do not reach an officer
and you do reach voice mail, please leave a message as the officers check
voice mail while on duty.


Almost every week for the past 12 years, one or two of our residents have stopped at the
front entrance to our subdivision to pick up trash that has been thrown out by people who
think that the esplanades are garbage receptacles. We thank those concerned homeowners
who have "cleaned up" the area. It would help the appearance of our subdivison if people
would "stop trashing" Candlelight Forest West. If you see bottles, cans, paper, etc. on the
streets coming into our going out of our subdivision, please stop and pick up the trash and
dispose of it. Please help us to keep our subdivision clean!
