Strike out Crime!

Recently HPD’s Southeast Patrol Division joined community members in striking out crime. 

The event was  part of the division’s 4th annual Safety Bowl and teamed HPD officers with residents in a friendly environment in which the officers wshared crime prevention tips and information. Officers also distributed Burglary of Motor Vehicle (BMV) report cards in the parking lot, looking for unlocked vehicles, windows left cracked open or rolled down, and personal belongs, all of which could serve as an enticement to thieves.
