Please REPORT ALL CRIMES (“call 9-1-1”) – crime data is collected by The City of Dallas and we’ll get our fair share of patrol officers. If you don’t report crime, it’s just like telling the City to send the officers to another part of town! Need some tips to avoid becoming a victim? Check out our Crime Watch page. Northwood Hills is patrolled by private armed security and NHHA members are able to contact the patrol directly and receive additional benefits. Learn more here.
Did you get a security sign? NHHA has created custom yard security signs announcing that Northwood Hills is patrolled by armed security and monitored by video surveillance. The crisp, eye-catching design and clear message make it a meaningful addition to the multi-faceted approach each homeowner needs to be taking in their security endeavors. Want to get one for your yard? If you’re not a current member, join NHHA or renew your membership today. Members can email Membership to request their sign.
The number for the security patrol is private and available to members only. Members receive the number each year in their renewal packet. We encourage you to program it into your smartphone or post it near your home phone. If you are a Member who has misplaced the security patrol number, please email Membership.
We strongly encourage homeowners to install surveillance cameras on their own properties for the purpose of both deterrence and aiding in police investigations. There are a multitude of options available now, including many that don’t require a large initial or ongoing monetary investment. Most alarm companies offer video surveillance options; visual doorbells are available without needing a contract with an alarm company; and individual cameras are available for purchase for use with a DVR.
If you already have video surveillance at your house, with accessible archived footage, and are willing to cooperate with a police request for footage if a circumstance necessitates it, please email us to let us know. We are maintaining a private list of homeowners with cameras so we can reach out in the event of a nearby incident.
We are always looking for ways to enhance the prestige and appeal of Northwood Hills and making our neighborhood a bad choice for criminals is part of that approach. Thanks for partnering with us to continually improve our community.
